Catalan giants Barcelona will be without their captain Lionel Messi when they host Eibar in La Liga at Camp Nou on Tuesday.

The Argentine talisman suffered an ankle injury during Barca’s 3-0 win over Real Valladolid in the previous match and is not expected to return before the new year.

In Messi’s absence, the onus will fall on the likes of Philippe Coutinho, Pedri and Antoine Griezmann, with Martin Braithwaite and Ousmane Dembele also available as an option.

Besides Messi, senior players Gerard Pique, Sergi Roberto and young star Ansu Fati are out due to injury while the reliable full-back Jordi Alba will serve his one-match ban against Eibar. Watch Barcelona vs Eibar on live streaming in India.
