Barcelona travel to Northern Catalonia to face Girona at the Estadio Municipal Montilivi in the 19th round of La Liga this afternoon.
The Blaugrana will be confident going into this game after beating Real Sociedad 1-0 on Wednesday in the Copa del Rey semi-final.
Robert Lewandowski and Ferran Torres remain suspended for this match after the red cards they picked up earlier in Els Culers’ league campaign.
Ronald Araújo and Sergio Busquets are one yellow card away from suspension. As Barcelona are set to play Real Betis midweek, Xavi will most likely rest them to for their fixture against Los Verdiblancos.
Predicted Barcelona lineup against Girona
AS predict that Xavi will field the following starting XI against Girona: Marc-André ter Stegen – Sergi Roberto, Jules Koundé, Andreas Christensen, Jordi Alba – Franck Kessié, Frenkie de Jong, Gavi – Raphinha, Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembélé.
The match is set to kick off at 4.15 pm local time.
