Eusebio Sacristán will not be able to field Gerard Deulofeu against Girona in Barça B’s upcoming Liga match on Saturday (18:00). The player is still recovering from an ankle sprain that he sustained in the match against Córdoba last week. Therefore the Catalan will be added to the list of unavailable players along with Tello and Montoya, with the first team, and Ilie and Miño, both of whom are injured. Kiko Femenía is also injured.

Bartra and Muniesa, with the team

The team completed their final training session this Friday before they play the Catalan derby against Girona. The match will be played at the Montilivi Municipal Stadium. For this match, Eusebio will be able to use Bartra and Muniesa, who have returned to training with the reserve side after a short stint with the first team.

Eusebio: “Girona will be motivated”

Sacristán explained what type of game he anticipates when his men take on Girona tomorrow: “they will be motivated, especially because of their position in the table.” It’s worth mentioning that Girona is currently sitting in the 12th spot of the Liga Adelante and with six points they can secure their spot in the league. “They’ve played at a good level in their past couple of games, including a victory against the leaders Deportivo,” who they beat 1-0 two weeks ago. “It would be a good birthday present to win on Saturday,” concluded Sacristán, who turns 48 this Friday.

Eusebio's birthday

This Friday, April 13th, the reserve side manager turns 48-years-old. Sacristán shares his birthday with the captain of the first team, Carles Puyol, who turns 34. Congratulations!
