Barcelona vs Sporting CP

Barcelona may have already won their group in the UEFA Champions League, but on Tuesday they will face a Sporting CP side who still have everything to play for.

The Portuguese side are just one point behind Juventus and will be hoping an unlikely win over the Blaugrana can see them through to the knockout stage, albeit they’re also relying on the Italian champions slipping up against Olympiakos.

Read on for a closer look at the clash, but first here is the viewing information and the latest team news:

Barcelona confirmed on their official website Andres Iniesta will miss the match against Sporting after suffering a calf injury on Saturday.

The club also ruled out Samuel Umtiti for around eight weeks after he suffered a hamstring injury in the same match, a 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo.

According to Transfermarkt, Sporting’s only absentee is Jonathan Silva, who picked up a knee injury in November that is expected to keep him out of action for several months.

The Dutchman netted his 14th goal of the campaign in all competitions against Belenenses on Friday, his 50th for the club in just 62 matches.

Meanwhile, as both Hernandez and Marsden noted, Lionel Messi was—as ever—a positive influence despite his team-mates failing to achieve the standards they are capable of in the contest.

However, the Argentinian did not start against Juventus in the last round of Champions League matches and, with little at stake, that may be the case again. If Messi is rested, it will fall to his team-mates to step up in his absence.

The match is of relatively little consequence to Barcelona, but with Umtiti out there’s scope for their defenders to stake a claim to start regularly until he returns. Up front, Messi’s potential absence could give others the chance to impress.
