Sergi Roberto returns from injury to take his place in the Barcelona squad for Tuesday's game against Real Valladolid at Camp Nou. 

However, there will be no Samuel Umtiti, Ousmane Dembele, Junior Firpo, Moussa Wague or Arthur Melo for various reasons. 

Umtiti has failed to recover from a knee injury in time, while Dembele is serving the second of a two-game ban. It appears Arthur, a regular in recent weeks, is resting ahead of three games in seven days. 

Junior and Wague, meanwhile, have been left out for technical reasons, while Carles Aleña returns to the 18. Ansu Fati and Carles Perez have also been called up. 

Barca lost top spot in the league over the weekend to Granada. Ernesto Valverde's side didn't play because the Clasico against Real Madrid was postponed. 

The squad is: Ter Stegen, Neto, Semedo, Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Lenglet, Todibo, Alba, Rakitic, Busquets,  De Jong, Arturo Vidal, Aleñá, Messi, Suárez, Griezmann, Ansu Fati and Carles Pérez.
