Head-to-Head: Barcelona vs Tottenham Hotspur
As far as head-to-head records are concerned, Barcelona has a better record against Tottenham Hotspur in official European games. In the four matches so far, Barcelona has won two of them.
Two of the other three matches ended in draws. It has been more than a year since Barcelona played Spurs in a UEFA Champions League group stage match at the Camp Nou that ended 1-1.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Barcelona: Preview
The availability of Ilkay Gundogan at Barcelona remains in doubt as he continues to heal from a problem with his adductor.His absence from the friendly match against Milan was also due to this issue.
I would like to point out that the new addition to the team Inigo Martinez is also undergoing treatment for a foot injury, which may delay his availability for the start of the new season.
Aside from the fact that Gavi and Andreas Christensen are currently in the healing phase from their respective injuries, Barcelona’s head coach, Xavi, is also concerned about both players.
Due to injuries, Postecoglou has been grappling with the inability to keep several players in the squad of Tottenham Hotspur.
There is a long list of players who have been sidelined by health concerns, including Ryan Sessegnon, Rodrigo Bentancur, Bryan Gil, and Richarlison. It is expected that Richarlison will be able to recover in time for the upcoming trip to Spain, despite these challenges.
