With almost everyone eligible for selection and a relatively intact squad, Girona FC manager Mchel Sánchez Muoz only has one fitness issue. Ibrahima Kébé (Knee Issues) is eliminated from consideration.
Xavi Hernández, manager of Barcelona, must contend with numerous scheduling conflicts. Adrià Pedrosa (groin injury) and Keidi Bare (ruptured ankle ligament) are two candidates who cannot be taken into account. Due to his ban, Ferran Torres is ineligible for this game.
Barcelona should possess the ball with authority and be rewarded with quality chances, in our opinion. While Girona FC won’t find it simple to get past their defense, we do see them scoring in this situation as well.
