Official: Barcelona 4-3-3 starting lineup to face Girona

As Barcelona get set to face Girona in a huge match at Montilivi in less than an hour, manager Xavi Hernandez has announced the starting lineup for the clash.

With both teams vying for the second place in La Liga, it is a must-win encounter for the Catalan clubs.

As such, Xavi has named a strong side, with only one change to the team that started against Valencia last Monday.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen retains his place in goal where he will be shielded by the centre-back pairing of Ronald Araujo and Pau Cubarsi, with the former hoping to redeem himself after some erroneous displays.

Jules Kounde and Joao Cancelo line up as the full-backs on the right and left sides, respectively.

Meanwhile, Sergi Roberto comes into the starting XI, potentially slotting in as a central midfielder alongside Andreas Christensen and Ilkay Gundogan.

It sees Fermin Lopez move out to the false-winger position on the left where Raphinha misses out. Pedri has been left out once again.

Robert Lewandowski and Lamine Yamal make up the rest of the attacking lineup.
