Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has named his squad for the Spanish champions' LaLiga week two clash at Athletic Club on Sunday evening (20:15 CEST).

Cillessen not included

New signing Jasper Cillessen's paperwork has not been finalised in time for the Dutch goalkeeper to be named on the list for the trip to Bilbao.

Cillessen was unveiled by Barça on Friday.

Foursome back in

However, Marc-André ter Stegen, Rafinha Alcántara, Javier Mascherano and André Gomes all return after missing Los Azulgranas' opening-day win over Real Betis.

They come in for Wilfrid Kaptoum and recent departures Douglas Pereira, Claudio Bravo and Sergi Samper, while the squad also features potentially Valencia-bound Munir El Haddadi.

Andrés Iniesta and Jérémy Mathieu continue to be sidelined by injury, and Neymar has been given an extended break following the Olympics.

Barcelona squad:

Ter Stegen, Masip, Piqué, Rakitic, Busquets, D. Suárez, Arda, L. Suárez, Messi, Rafinha, Mascherano, Munir, Alba, Digne, Roberto, Gomes, Vidal and Umtiti.
