Barcelona, led by coach Xavi Hernandez, will take on Athletic in their LaLiga matchday ten clash on Sunday, but they will be missing several key players due to injuries.

Barcelona is grappling with a wave of injuries, making preparations for the upcoming LaLiga and Champions League fixtures challenging. Ahead of their LaLiga match against Athletic on Sunday, the Catalan side faces the absence of seven key players, including Alejandro Balde, Lamine Yamal, Jules Kounde, Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Frenkie de Jong, and Pedri.

Both Lewandowski and De Jong are contending with ankle sprains, with the former progressing faster and likely to feature in the next LaLiga match. Pedri Gonzalez, recovering well, remains sidelined for the upcoming games. Balde, facing a similar injury, might return later than Pedri.

Defensive stalwart Jules Kounde, nursing a knee injury from the 2-2 draw against Granada, may miss the Sunday fixture but shows promising progress on social media. Raphinha aims for a return in ‘El Clasico’ against Real Madrid on October 28, ruling him out for matches against Athletic and Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.

Lamine Yamal, dealing with a hip injury, sought recovery with Spanish national team doctors but faces weeks on the sidelines.

Barcelona is determined to defend their title, but they currently trail behind Madrid and Girona in the LaLiga standings. Despite facing a challenging period with numerous key players sidelined due to injuries, they remain committed to climbing up the table in the upcoming matches.

On a brighter note, their performance in the Champions League is promising, holding the top spot in Group H after securing victories against Antwerp and Porto.
