Ernesto Valverde decided not to change anything from the Inter Milan game and showed confidence in Rafinha Alcantara to start on the right instead of the injured Lionel Messi. The big loser is Ousmane Dembele, benched again.
Barca played well against Inter and Rafinha broke the deadlock in their 2-0 win. Valverde preferred continuity instead of meddling. Arthur unsurprisingly retains his place in midfield.
The one player left out of the squad is Denis Suarez, who made the initial list but was later chopped.
