UEFA Champions League 2020-21 Barcelona vs Ferencvaros: Team News, Injury Update
While Barcelona will strive to start on a winning note this season, 2020-2021 holds a big promise for Ferencvaros as it is the first time in 25 years that they have been present in the group stages of the Champions League.
The Group G members are yet to play against each other. While the Catalan team will fight hard to erase the trace of their last season’s quarter final elimination, the Green Eagles won their 31st Hungarian title last season and are in good form.
Ronald Koeman has taken the charge of Barcelona after Quique Setien was removed as the Barca coach following the side's humiliating defeat of 8-2 at the hands of Bayern Munich in the 2019-20 season. Sergiy Rebrov is the manager for the visitors.
The Spanish team will play without Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Jordi Alba on Wednesday and Samuel Umtiti is a doubt. Ansu Fati and Philippe Coutinho are set to return to the line-up after they did not play in the game against Getafe. The rest of the squad, including Lionel Messi, will be available.
While the Hungarian side is greatly inexperienced at this level, no major news of injury will be burdening them.
