after beating Valencia in La Liga last Saturday and playing to a scoreless stalemate at Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, Barça will go down to Andalusia on Saturday for their third contest in an eight-day span and a domestic league clash with sixth-placed Granada — winners of two in a row. Kickoff at the Nuevo Los Cármenes is set for 9.00pm CEST.

Barça manager Ernesto Valverde will head to Granada with these 18 players: Ter Stegen, N. Semedo, Piqué, I. Rakitic, Sergio, Todibo, Arthur, Suárez, Messi, Neto, Lenglet, Griezmann, S. Roberto, F. De Jong, Vidal, Junior, C. Pérez, and Ansu Fati.

Left out due to coach’s decision are M. Wague and Aleñá, while O. Dembélé, Jordi Alba, and Umtiti are out with injuries.
