Barcelona very concerned over poor state of Wembley grass



The unusually hot summer in London has left the Wembley playing surface in an awful state for the Tottenham-Barcelona Group B clash.

Beyond their defensive issues, Barcelona now have another concern ahead of their Champions League clash against Tottenham in London – the Wembley playing surface.

After an unusually hot summer in the England, the grass at Wembley has been left damaged, sun-burnt and with a considerable amount of bald patches.

Ernesto Valverde’s side will have to try to get to grips with the poor surface this Tuesday evening in a training session at Wembley ahead of the match on Wednesday. Uefa officials have already taken note of the state of the playing surface for their final match report.
