Arda Turan is in the squad in place of André Gomes

The Turkish midfielder is the only fresh face in Luis Enrique's match day squad for the match against Celta in place of the Portuguese midfielder who is ill

Barça host Celta at the Camp Nou on Saturday at 8.45pm CET and they do so with just the one change to their 18-player match day squad. Arda Turan comes into the squad, having been passed fit on Wednesday, and is included in Luis Enrique’s squad in place of André Gomes. The Portuguese midfielder misses out as he is ill and was unable to train on Friday. Barça’s number ‘21’ joins the injured Aleix Vidal and Jérémy Mathieu on the sidelines, while Jordi Masip has been left out by the coach. 

Therefore, Arda for André is the only change from Wednesday’s 6-1 win over Sporting as Barça head into their second game at the Camp Nou in only four days. This time they do so looking to defend their position at the top of the table.

The match day squad in full: Ter Stegen, Cillessen, Piqué, Rakitic, Sergio, Denis Suárez, Arda, Iniesta, Suárez, Messi, Neymar Jr, Rafinha, Mascherano, Paco Alcácer, Jordi Alba, Digne, Sergi Roberto and Umtiti.
