Barca should be relaxed ahead of their journey to the Netherlands, with manager Ernesto Valverde leading his team out of the group with little fuss.

Valverde's 21-man party will be attempting to win the group on their travels, but Suarez was omitted from the squad.

Per the club's official website, the Uruguay international is joined by Sergi Roberto, Sergi Samper, Arthur Melo and Jasper Cillesen as absentees, but Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic are back in contention.

Per Sky Sports, a club statement explained Suarez's status: "He will follow biological therapy with stem cells as a treatment for discomfort in the right knee and will be out for around two weeks."

The former Liverpool man's absence could offer a rare start for Malcom. The 21-year-old came off the bench to help Barca earn a 1-1 draw against Inter Milan at the San Siro on November 6, finishing with a clinical strike just seconds after replacing Ousmane Dembele.

Dembele's form and selection has been a source of bemusement for fans and pundits, but the France international is blessed with a burgeoning talent. The attacker has six goals to his name in La Liga and Europe this term, and he could benefit from Suarez's absence most.

Lionel Messi has primarily featured on the right side of the attack this season, but he could be moved to the centre with the striker position vacant.

PSV continue to be the top side in the Eredivisie this season. They have conceded only five goals and are unbeaten in 13 matches. Maximum points have ensured they have remained above rivals Ajax in the title race.

Ryan Thomas is the hosts' only absentee, giving manager Mark van Bommel a near-full squad to chose from.

The Dutch side will hope to cause a shock on home turf and then steal third spot on the final matchday.

A run in the UEFA Europa League could prove fruitful for PSV, opening up a potential route to European success in the second half of the campaign.

Hirving Lozano's form continues to excite PSV supporters, with the Mexican winger developing into one of the hottest talents in Europe after scoring 11 goals and providing six assists in all competitions this season.
