Valencia squad to face Barcelona: 2 players miss out at the last minute

Valencia have published their 20-man squad for their match at home against Barcelona on Monday evening.

Two new absentees have been announced just hours before kick-off: Fran Pérez and Dimitri Foulquier.

Both players stayed in Valencia as their teammates made the trip up to Barcelona, due to slight discomfort.

These two join the three absentees we already knew: Roman Yaremchuk, José Gayà and Mouctar Diakhaby.

Valencia head into the match with an outside chance of qualifying for the Europa Conference league, as they are four points adrift of Real Sociedad, who currently occupy 6th position.

Valencia will be looking to improve upon their previous result when they head up the Costa Brava to Barcelona, as they lost 2-1 last time out at home to Real Betis.

Barcelona meanwhile head into the match having lost 3-2 away to Real Madrid last time out in El Clasico.

Valencia will have a tough task on their hands however, as Barcelona are unbeaten against them in their previous 7 meetings.
