The Catalans travel to Germany for the first leg of their quarter-final tie off the back of major LaLiga victories over Real Madrid and Sevilla.
Starting at the Camp Nou on Saturday was Alves, but the veteran continues to be absent for European matches having not been registered for the competition.
Sergino Dest may not be fit to provide cover for the Brazilian due to a hamstring complaint, which could force Ronald Araujo out wide.
Luuk de Jong may miss the game having tested positive for Covid-19 late last week whereas injuries will keep Ansu Fati, Sergi Roberto and Samuel Umtiti sidelined.
Barca boss Xavi could choose to rotate his lineup and bring in Adama Traore or Memphis Depay up top, yet a trip to lowly Levante in between the two legs should provide ample opportunity to rest stars then.
Predicted Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen; Araujo, Pique, Garcia, Alba; F. de Jong, Busquets, Pedri; Dembele, Aubameyang, Torres.
