Barcelona star set to miss crucial Bayern Munich clash



A key Barcelona player has been left out of the club’s huge Champions League clash with Bayern Munich next week.

Bayern Munich v Barcelona

Bayern Munich and FC Barcelona set to meet in Champions League meeting on December 8e.

Top-of-the-game Bayern Munich were at the top of their group and eight points clear of second place. As a result, the German formation has already secured passage in the knockout rounds and 1st place in group E.

This means that the game is of little importance to Julian Nagelsmann. However, for Barcelona the tie is huge.

Xavi Hernandez’s team head to the reunion in second place in Group E. Mais 3e Benfica are just two points behind them heading into the final round of group matches.

So if Benfica were to eliminate Dynamo Kyiv, which seems likely as the Ukrainian side haven’t won a CL game this quarter and only scored one goal, and Barca fail to beat the Bayern, so Barcelona would end up finishing 3e in their squad – condemning them to one season in the Europa League.

Barcelona star out of shock with Bayern

As a result, the Spanish powerhouse will desperately seek to field a squad as strong as possible on Wednesday.

However, as mentioned above, they should be without a key star for the game.

As reported by Spanish outlet RAC1, Ansu Fati has yet to recover from his current injury – which is believed to be a hamstring issue – in time to face Bayern:

Fati has scored four goals and assisted one in eight games for La Blaugrana this term. Will they be able to manage without him?
