FC Barcelona announce squad for La Liga match against Girona

The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana return to action for a monster La Liga game against local rivals Girona, and Xavi Hernández has called up the following 23 players for Saturday’s derby:

Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 13. Iñaki Peña, 31. Diego Kochen

Defenders: 2. João Cancelo, 4. Ronald Araujo, 5. Iñigo Martínez, 15. Andreas Christensen, 17. Marcos Alonso, 23. Jules Kounde, 33. Pau Cubarsí, 39. Héctor Fort

There was some doubt about the availability of Vitor Roque after the Brazilian missed training on Friday but he has recovered in time and makes the list, leaving only Frenkie de Jong (ankle), Alejandro Balde (hamstring) and Gavi (knee) as absentees as they are ruled out for the rest of the season through injury.

Predicted starting XI (4-2-3-1):

Ter Stegen; Kounde, Araujo, Cubarsí, Cancelo; Christensen, Pedri; Yamal, Gündogan, Raphinha; Lewandowski
