The pair were instrumental in the Catalan club’s dismantling of Manchester City in the last 16 of the competition, and would be a huge miss if they weren’t available for the final.

Their teammate Luis Suarez may not have the same problem as he is currently banned from competitive fixtures with Uruguay following his bite on Giorgio Chiellini in the World Cup.

The Copa del Rey final is also a fixture that the pair could miss. Other sides could also suffer, with Real Madrid missing James Rodriguez and PSG without Edinson Cavani as two notable examples.

It is likely that UEFA will sort a deal with the South American national teams, but even so this is a slightly embarrassing situation for the governing body.
