Paco Alcacer Out Against Juventus

Barcelona, Spain – Paco Alcacer will miss Barcelona’s clash against Juventus for Champions League Group D. Furthermore, the striker missed Monday afternoon’s training due to gastroenteritis. In addition, Rafinha and Arda Turan are out due to injury.

However, Ernesto Valverde will count with the return of Sergi Roberto who has overcome a knee problem.

Barcelona’s squad against Juventus this Tuesday will be as follows: Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, Jasper Cillessen, Nelson Semedo, Gerard Pique, Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Denis Suarez, Andres Iniesta, Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi, Ousmane Dembele, Javier Mascherano, Paulinho, Gerard Deulofeu, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto, Andre Gomes and Samuel Umtiti.

Massimiliano Allegri admits Juventus “have to play to score” against Barcelona “without making calculations”. It has been suggested that a draw at Camp Nou tomorrow would be a decent result, but the Coach isn’t considering that notion.

However, Juve will miss striker Mario Mandzukic due to an injury picked up on international duty with Croatia.
