Ernesto Valverde could bring Ansu Fati back into the side as he manages his squad with three games coming up over the next seven days. 

Barça's game-less weekend saw them lose top spot to Granada, who beat Real Betis. The Andalusian side, though, are now not in action again until Thursday (vs. Getafe), so Barça could regain the lead on Tuesday. 

Ernesto Valverde's side are targeting their seventh straight win following their surprise loss to Granada. 

Valverde has rested Arthur for the visit of Valladolid, while Samuel Umtiti is injured and Ousmane Dembele is serving the second of a two-game ban. 

Ansu, who hasn't played for the first team for a month, could come into the side for Antoine Griezmann, who traveled to the United States over the weekend. 

Meanwhile, Junior Firpo and Moussa Wague have not even been called up, while Sergi Roberto returns from injury and Carles Aleña is brought back from exille.
