As FC Barcelona head into the match against UD Almeria in La Liga, Suspension issues linger over a multitude of key players as the club heads into the decisive phase of the season.

The players that face the possible scare of being suspended are Sergio Busquets, Pablo Gavi, Ferran Torres, Dembele, and Franck Kessie who have accumulated a total of 4 yellow cards in the league. A fifth yellow card would mean that they will miss a match due to the accumulation of five yellow cards, and out of these 5 possible squad members, Gavi and Busquets are of unprecedented importance.

If 5 players were not enough, even the manager, Xavi Hernandez is on the verge of being sidelined for a match due to the same aforementioned reason as he has also accumulated a total of 4 yellow cards. The next match is against Valencia at Camp Nou, and they were a difficult side to beat the last time Barcelona faced them away at their home.

The El Classico fixture is also in line, which will take place on 19th March, and any of the key players missing will make the clash tougher. The worst-case scenario is that more than one player will miss the game, which will make the matchday even tougher.

Pedri Gonzalez is already out for a considerable time and more players missing will further thin the squad depth. The ideal case scenario is that the players miss one of the prior fixtures due to suspension or do not get any bookings at all till the match against Real Madrid, which is a tougher probability.
