Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 30. Iñaki Peña

Defenders: 2. Nélson Semedo, 3. Gerard Piqué, 15. Clément Lenglet, 17. Jeison Murillo, 18. Jordi Alba, 23. Samuel Umtiti

Forwards: 9. Luis Suárez, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Ousmane Dembélé, 14. Malcom

There are no fresh injury concerns following the Champions League game in Lyon, so Valverde had an easy selection. Missing the game due to injury are Arthur (hamstring), Rafinha (knee), Thomas Vermaelen (leg) and Jasper Cillessen (calf), while Kevin-Prince Boateng, Jean-Clair Todibo and Sergi Samper didn’t make the trip per the manager’s choice.

Predicted starting XI (4-3-3):
