Eric Garcia will miss about 5 weeks through a right thigh injury, Barcelona have confirmed.
Thus, we could only expect the Spaniard to be fit mid-February – this is the time when Barcelona will kick off the Europa League action.
As things stand, the Catalans have only 4 centre-backs available: Clement Lenglet, Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti and Oscar Mingueza.
Ronald Araujo remains injured but could re-join training in a few days.
