Barcelona will have to cope without Gerard Pique for their Champions League clash at home to Borussia Dortmund on November 27th.

The centre-back will miss the game through suspension after picking up his third yellow card of the group stages for pulling down Peter Olayinka after 14 minutes.

The booking is Pique’s ninth in 14 games this season and means he will sit out a potentially tricky tie against the Bundesliga side.

The two teams drew 0-0 in the opening group fixture at Westfalenstadion back in September.

Pique’s absence means it’s likely that fit-again Samuel Umtiti will partner Clement Lenglet for the match against Dortmund at the Camp Nou.
