Bayern Munich vs Barcelona: Champions League 2019-20: suspensions and injuries
Barcelona did not have midfielders Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal in the second leg Round 16 against Napoli, but both sides should have the option to play against Bayern. Samuel Umtiti must have been excluded because of a knee injury, while Ousmane Dembele is facing a race against time that is enough to take a place on the bench. Martin Braithwaite was excluded from Setién’s Champions League lineup and therefore will not appear.
Bayern: After the return of Kingsley Coman and Jerome Boateng, Bayern Munich got a strong push for the match against Barcelona. They both missed their match against Chelsea last weekend. Boateng will almost certainly return to the centre of the defence with David Alaba, while Koeman will compete with Ivan Perisic for Bayern’s left.
