Barcelona will host Dynamo Kyiv at the Camp Nou tomorrow and there’s both good and bad news ahead of the clash. The papers are, of course, focusing on another big European night in Catalonia but their covers are drastically different.
SPORT, for example, talk about the possible return of Marc-André ter Stegen, who’s been out of action for quite a while following his surgery.
The paper, however, claims, the German keeper is ready to face Kyiv on Wednesday and could even be chosen by Ronald Koeman. If the Dutchman decides to rotate against his Wednesday opposition, we might see the return of Barcelona’s no.1.
No games are easy in Europe but with Dynamo missing half of their squad, it might be a good test-run for Ter Stegen’s fitness and a chance to regain some of the match sharpness as well.
Mundo Deportivo, on the other hand, are focusing on Barcelona’s opposition. Their title says ‘COVID alarm‘.
As previously reported, the Kyiv squad is heavily depleted by absences caused by the virus. The guests have arrived in Catalonia with only 13 players, the bare minimum required for a game to be held.
However, there’s another catch. They will be tested once more before the clash and if one additional player turns out to be positive, the game will have to be postponed.
Of course, safety comes first and the current circumstances in the outside world are making football that much more difficult than it has to be.
