However, Sergiño Dest returned to training on Saturday and coach Ronald Koeman has been able to include the United States international in the squad.

In addition to Messi, Barça are also missing Gerard Pique, Ansu Fati, Philippe Coutinho and Sergi Roberto, all of whom remain sidelined with injuries.

The full squad is: Ter Stegen, Dest, Araujo, Sergio Busquets, Griezmann, Pjanic, Dembélé, Braithwaite, Riqui Puig, Neto, Lenglet, Pedri, Tricao, Jordi Alba, Matheus, De Jong, Umtiti, Junior, Mingueza, Arnau Tenas and Konrad.
