Denis Suárez has been reinstated to Barcelona’s squad for the Copa del Rey first leg match against Valencia at Camp Nou after being left out of Ernesto Valvderde’s last three match day lists.

The Galician has been called up to cover for the absence of André Gomes, who is suffering from a stomach virus that caused him to miss the game against Alavés. Nelson Semedo has also been ruled out while Thomas Vermaelen, who had impressed in a recent run of games, and Ousmane Dembélé are also unavailable through injury.

In good news for Valverde, Sergio Busquets has recovered from a bout of gastroenteritis and will be able to play.

Full Barça squad for Valencia:

Ter Stegen, Cillessen, Piqué, Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Denis, Iniesta, Luis Suárez, Messi, Coutinho, Paulinho, Paco Alcácer, Jordi Alba, Digne, S. Roberto, Aleix Vidal, Umtiti, Yerry Mina.
