Dembele suffered a sprain in the game against Leganes and hasn't trained for two weeks, while he also suffered a fever over the weekend.

For the clash against their arch rival both Messi and the former Borussia Dortmund forward remain a big doubt but it is down to Ernesto Valverde to make a choice.

Rafinha is also out due to Cruciate Ligament Rupture, Samuel Umtit is out due to knee injury,  goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen is also out due to torn muscle bundle, Jordi Alba won't be available due to suspension.
