Barcelona travel to the Illes Balears to face Mallorca at the Estadi de Son Moix in the seventh round of La Liga, with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.

The Blaugrana are currently facing an injury crisis, especially in defence. Ronald Araújo and Jules Koundé have been ruled out for three months and a month respectively after picking up injuries while away on international duty. Héctor Bellerín will also not be available as he pulled a muscle during training earlier this week.

Xavi is expected to start Andreas Christensen and Eric García as his centre-back pairing. The Barcelona coach wants to avoid playing Gerard Piqué as much as possible in order to prevent the triggering of a clause that will see his contract extended by a year at the end of the season.

Dutch players Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay are also injured.
