Official: Barcelona squad list to face Espanyol

Barcelona are coming into the next gameweek of the league with a bucket-load of momentum. And why not? After all, they put four past Atletico Madrid after being 1-0 down, winning the game 4-2.

The difficulty of the fixtures at hand, however, does not decrease, for Barcelona will travel to RCDE Stadium to take on Espanyol for the Catalan derby.

The squad list for tonight’s game features the returning Eric Garcia. The Spaniard picked up an injury before the turning of the year and is finally set to make a return to action after months.

Both Ferran Jutgla and Ez Abde played around 90 minutes during Barcelona B’s 1-1 draw against Linares Deportivo but have made the cut for the senior team as well. A few minutes off the bench in the final quarter of the game will not at all be surprising.

Memphis Depay is still absent but is closing a return. If Xavi’s words are anything to go by, the Dutchman make a return next week.
