Four Barcelona players and Xavi in danger of missing Sevilla clash due to suspension

Four Barcelona players and Xavi in danger of missing Sevilla clash due to suspension

After an eventful end to the transfer deadline day, Barcelona will look to focus on their affairs on the pitch as they take on Real Betis tonight.

It is a must-win contest for the Catalans as they look to maintain their healthy five-point lead over arch-rivals Real Madrid at the top of the league table.

 

The club have performed exceedingly well since the turn of the year. But ahead of a tough February schedule, they must proceed with caution, especially with a host of players already running the risk of suspension in the upcoming game against Sevilla in the event of a booking versus Real Betis.

 

There are, in fact, four Barcelona players that could face suspension against Sevilla if they pick up a booking tonight.

The players in contention are Sergio Busquets, Ronald Araujo, Ferran Torres and Gavi. They have all picked up four yellow cards in La Liga this season and will miss the upcoming league contest against Sevilla if they pick up another booking.

In addition to these four players, Barcelona also have head coach Xavi Hernandez running the risk of suspension. The Spaniard has taken up four bookings in La Liga, including one last weekend when Barcelona faced Girona.

Another booking against Real Betis would mean that the head coach will not be available against Sevilla in the next game.

Apart from these individuals, Barcelona also have Ousmane Dembele running the risk of suspension due to his four yellow cards. But the winger is currently out injured, having picked up a knock at the end of last month.
