The Camp Nou awaits a familiar foe in Manchester United tomorrow as Barcelona host the English outfit as part of the Europa League knockout stages. The winner of this fixture will advance to the Round of 16.

Barcelona have just two players missing for the game, with Ousmane Dembele and Sergio Busquets dealing with injuries. United, on the other hand, are travelling without seven first-team players, as revealed by their squad list.

In terms of starters, Erik ten Hag had confirmed the absence of Anthony Martial, Antony, and Christian Eriksen from the game. The Dane, especially, will even miss the second leg, while the former two could make it in time for the Old Trafford fixture.

United have two players suspended as well, in Lisandro Martinez and Marcel Sabitzer.

The Argentine picked up three yellow cards in the Europa League this season, while the Austrian picked up three bookings in the Champions League with Bayern Munich, which have carried over to the Europa.

Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay are also missing from the travelling team due to injuries.

Jadon Sancho is part of the squad, though, after missing nearly three months due to personal reasons. He scored the equaliser against Leeds United last week.

Ten Hag has also called up reserve side players in Facundo Pellistri, Zidane Iqbal, and Kobbie Mainoo.
