The weekend means the return of La Liga and the third game in eight days for the blaugranes ahead of the upcoming international break. Barça play host to Celta Vigo who are currently in 18th position in the table after a run of four successive defeats and are now coached by former Barça player Òscar Garcia. Ahead of Saturday's game at Camp Nou, coach Ernesto Valverde announced his 19 man squad for the fixture:
Ter Stegen, N. Semedo, Piqué, I. Rakitic, Sergio, Arthur, Suárez, Messi, O. Dembélé, Neto, Lenglet, M. Wague, Griezmann, S. Roberto, F. De Jong, Vidal, Umtiti, Junior and Ansu Fati. Left out are Todibo, Aleñá and Carles Pérez with Jordi Alba missing due to injury.
On Friday the team trained for the final time ahead of the game against Celta. At the Ciutat Esportiva, Luis Suárez trained with the rest of the first team squad plus Iñaki Peña, Carles Pérez and Ansu Fati from Barça B. When the session was over, striker Suárez was declared fit for selection having recovered from the injury he picked in the game at Levante last weekend.
