Also ready for his second consecutive outing will be Urugayan striker Luis Suárez, after making his début in the defeat at Real Madrid in El Clásico.
Although manager Luis Enrique has expressed a strong desire to win the Supercopa de Catalunya, there are a lot of rotations, as he seeks to offer players who haven’t had the chance to feature as often, the opportunity of minutes against Espanyol.
There’s also a strong contingent of Barça B players included in the 20-man list, for the match tonight at Montilivi in Girona, with kick-off at 21:30 CET.
