Barcelona and coach Xavi Hernández are gearing up for a demanding week, with several concerns and injury woes plaguing the team as they approach their first UEFA Champions League fixture.

Pedri’s Injury: The Spanish giants were already anxious about Pedri’s situation following his injury.

Ilkay Gündogan’s Injury: In a recent development, midfielder Ilkay Gündogan left the pitch during Germany’s game against France after sustaining a harsh knock to his back. His tearful exit has raised concerns of a potentially serious injury.

Ronald Araujo’s Unavailability: Adding to their troubles, Uruguayan defender Ronald Araujo remains unavailable due to a lingering muscular issue in his left leg.

These injuries have left Barcelona with a depleted starting lineup and questions surrounding their prospects in the upcoming UEFA Champions League clash.

Barcelona is set to face Royal Antwerp on Matchday 1 of the UEFA Champions League. While they may appear to have the upper hand, given their history and reputation in the competition, the absence of key players adds a layer of uncertainty to the equation.

Coach Xavi Hernández must now rally his team for a strong performance in their first continental fixture outside Camp Nou. Barcelona’s ability to overcome these challenges will showcase Xavi’s managerial prowess and the team’s resilience, eagerly watched by the footballing world in their pursuit of Champions League glory.
