Barcelona squad for visit to Atlético Madrid
Ernesto Valverde names his 18 man squad to visit the Spanish capital.
Barcelona have announced their squad to play Atlético Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday evening at 21:00 CET, in matchday 15 of LaLiga 2019/20.
Dembélé of course is out, having suffered a hamstring injury in the midweek Champions League victory over Borussia Dortmund - he's expected to be out until February in what Barça coach Ernesto Valverde called a "big loss".
Also out injured are Nelson Semedo and Jordi Alba, while Sergio Busquets misses out suspended. The only player left out by Valverde is young French defender Jean Clair Todibo.
Messi, Suárez and Griezmann, who all scored in the win over Dortmund, are all in the squad, and will be expected to start.
Gerard Piqué is back in the squad after missing out in Europe on Wednesday night as he was suspended.
