Gerard Piqué in training on Tuesday / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

Luis Enrique has announced the list of 18 players who will make up the squad for the trip to Celta Vigo (Wednesday 8.00pm CET).  The main talking point is the return of Gerard Piqué after having served a four-game ban and now will be able to play his first game of the league season. The bad news is that neither Sandro Ramírez nor Jordi Alba will make the trip to Vigo. Ramírez has a bruised left leg and Alba is a last-minute scratch due to neck pain. Douglas has been activated to take Alba's place.

Ramírez and Alba join Bravo, Vermaelen and Rafinha on the injured list.

To complete the squad list Luis Enrique has once again included B team midfielder Gerard Gumbau. As such the full squad list is as follows: Marc-André Ter Stegen, Gerard Piqué, Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Dani Alves, Andrés Iniesta, Luis Suárez, Leo Messi, Neymar Jr, Mascherano, Marc Bartra, Munir, Douglas, Sergi Roberto, Adriano, Mathieu, Masip and Gumbau.

Before travelling to Vigo the first team took part in their final training session at the Ciutat Esportiva ahead of the game against Celta. Luis Enrique had all his available players at the session as well as B team members José Suárez and Gerard Gumbau.
