Current Champions League Injuries & Suspensions List

Injuries & Suspensions
One of the biggest agendas for Europe's top clubs is securing a good UEFA Champions League run. But not only does chances of success in the lucrative competition come down to form and resources, but it is about depth and quality of squad.
Chances of getting to the final of the Champions League will be greatly accentuated if injuries and suspensions are low in their respective tallies. So knowledge of Champions League injuries and bans can be valuable knowledge for a bettor to follow.

Missing key personnel in the top UEFA club competition could be crucial to the chances of a side pulling off a win. Will the goals be at a premium because a club's top proven goalscorer is out with an injury, or has the defence been weakened because of a suspension to a centre half? The Champions League injury list can have big implications for your football betting and attention does need to be paid fully to it.
