Ernesto Valverde has named his squad for the Camp Nou’s first ever derby against Girona, and  it reads as follows: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Piqué, Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Iniesta, Luis Suárez, Messi, Dembelé, Cillessen, Coutinho, Paulinho, Jordi Alba, Digne, Sergi Roberto, Aleix Vidal, Umtiti and Vermalen.

Yerry Mina, Paco Alcácer, Denis Suárez and André Gomes are the four players that the manager has opted to leave out.

The announcement was made shortly after the training session at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, where the first team were joined by Barça B goalkeeper Jokin Ezkieta.

Before the workout began, the players gathered to congratulate Sergi Roberto on the extension of his contract with the club through to 2022.
