Barcelona vs Frankfurt: Team news & key stats

Gerard Pique was injured in the first leg against Frankfurt and he will be sidelined from this fixture alongside Sergi Roberto, Sergino Dest and Samuel Umtiti. Dani Alves, meanhwile, is ineligible.

A late call will be taken on Memphis Depay's involvement following the Dutchman's thigh injury, while Ansu Fati has only just returned to training so far.

As for Frankfurt, Tuta is suspended after his sending off in the first leg. Midfielder Djibril Sow remains a doubt after suffering a knock in the 2-1 Freiburg loss on Sunday.

Christopher Lenz and Diant Ramaj are also out injured for the visitors.

Key Stats:

  • Barcelona have won 14 of their last 16 home games against German sides in European competition (L2), however this will be the first such fixture played outside of the UEFA Champions League since January 1998 – a 2-0 win for Barcelona in the European Super Cup final (first leg) against Borussia Dortmund.
  • Eintracht Frankfurt are unbeaten in their last nine games against Spanish sides in European competition (W5 D4), including the last four away from home (W3 D1) – they won 2-1 away to Real Betis in the previous round this season.
  • Barcelona have only failed to progress from one of their last six knockout stage ties in European competition when avoiding defeat in the first leg, with that elimination coming against Liverpool – the eventual winners – in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals in 2018-19 (3-0 in first leg, 0-4 in second leg).
  • Ferran Torres has been directly involved in four goals in five appearances for Barcelona in European competition (two goals, two assists); the most of any player since he joined the club.
  • Eintracht Frankfurt’s Filip Kostic has created eight chances following a carry (moving 5+ metres with the ball) in the UEFA Europa League this season, the most of any player in the competition.
