The teenager has trained with the first team this week but was a surprise inclusion when Ernesto Valverde named his squad for Sunday’s game.
Juvenil A boss Valdes has sent a message of support to the youngster ahead of the match at the Camp Nou.

Víctor Valdés le manda un mensaje a @ansufati : “Te deseo todo lo mejor en este día tan especial, piensa que al fin y al cabo solo es fútbol y gol! Disfruta del Camp Nou pequeño, que de bien seguro, si debutas, te llevará en volandas. Siempre fuerte y veloz, ANSU! #Talento #Masia #Futtack #King”
He wrote: “I wish you all the best on this special day. Think that at the end of the day it’s just football and scoring a goal. Enjoy the Camp Nou, little one. If you make your debut I’m sure they’ll raise you up into the sky. Always be strong and fast, Ansu.”
If Ansu Fati does play on Sunday he will become the second youngest league debutant in the club’s history.
