Player to watch out for

Barcelona is more likely to field a much-rotated squad, after back-to-back Champions League games against Chelsea.

However, much focus would be placed on the return of Alexia Putellas whose return from injury was announced earlier on Wednesday. Barcelona who received a major boost right before their game against Chelsea will finally be able to play with Alexia Putellas who has been sidelined for almost 10 months due to an ACL injury.

The captain was unable to make an appearance at the Spotify Camp Nou in midweek, considering the intensity of the game. And for a player just returning from a long-term injury, the risk was unnecessary.

However, not playing a single game since getting injured in July 2022, the two-time Ballon d’Or and FIFA The Best winner would be itching to get back on the grass. With the league campaign almost wrapped up, the champions-elect should have no problem giving the captain an appearance and quickly integrating her back into the team. Thus, keeping her match fit and ready for the final in Eindhoven come June.


Barcelona would be without the services of Lucy Bronze who just had an arthroscopic surgery done on her right knee after getting injured while playing against Chelsea in London.

Fridolina Rolfo also misses out due to discomfort in her right knee. She is off against Sporting Huelva and the evolution will mark her availability for the upcoming games.
