Barcelona will be missing six first-team players through injury for Sunday's La Liga contest with Levante.

Barcelona will be without the services of six first-team players through injury for Sunday's La Liga contest with Levante at Estadi Ciutat de Valencia.

Memphis Depay (hamstring), Ansu Fati (hamstring) and Samuel Umtiti (foot) have all recently been back in training after recovering from their injury problems, but the trio are not yet considered fit for selection.

Sergino Dest (hamstring) and Sergi Roberto (thigh) are also still unavailable, while Gerard Pique picked up a groin problem against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League last week and misses out.

There is a return to the squad for on-loan Sevilla striker Luuk de Jong, though, with the Netherlands international now testing negative for COVID-19 after a spell out.

Pique's absence could see Ronald Araujo move from right-back to central defence, with Dani Alves potentially returning to the starting XI.

Ousmane Dembele is also pushing to return to the team, with the France international dropping down the bench for the Europa League quarter-final first leg with Frankfurt on Thursday night.

Head coach Xavi said during his pre-match press conference that Fati was closing in on a return to first-team action, while Dest is expected to be back in training next week.

Barcelona squad:

Ter Stegen, Neto, Caveric; Araujo, Alves, Lenglet, Alba, Mingueza, E Garcia; Busquets, Puig, Nico, Pedri, F de Jong, Gavi; Dembele, Adama, Braithwaite, L de Jong, Torres, Aubameyang
