Sergio Busquets, who is now over a stomach bug, makes the 19-man squad for tomorrow's Week 18 trip top the Coliseum.
There were a hanful of new additions to the first Barcelona squad list of 2019. New arrival Jeison Murillo makes the list for tomorrow's away trip to Getafe although he is expected to watch the game from the subs' bench. Sergi Roberto and Malcom, who picked up injuries in the team's most recent outings against Atlético de Madrid and Cultural Leonesa respectively, make their return. Sergio Busquets, who has been recovering from a stomach bug and missed yesterday's open training session at the Mini Estadi, is also included and will be among the expedition flying out to Madrid at 11:00 hours tomorrow morning. Ernesto Valverde has called 19 players as a precaution in case Busquets suffers a relapse. The most significant omission is that of Munir, who has told Barça that he won't be renewing his contract.
As for the starting XI at the Coliseum tomorrow night, Valverde is expceted to field a similar side to the one which ended last year. His only doubt is whether to field Semedo or Sergi Roberto at right-back. The most probable Barça line-up will read: Ter Stegen, Semedo o Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Lenglet, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Vidal; Messi, Suárez and Dembélé. Coutinho will likely start on the subs' bench again.
Barcelona squad list:
Ter Stegen, Cillessen, Semedo, Piqué, Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Denis Suárez, Coutinho, Arthur, Suárez, Messi, Dembélé, Malcom, Lenglet, Murillo, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto, Aleñá and Vidal.
