Ernesto Valverde has named his Barcelona squad for the trip to face Real Betis at the Benito Villamarin on Sunday night, with the only player missing out through the coach’s decision being Jeison Murillo.

The Colombian has found it increasingly difficult to get anywhere near the Barcelona squad since Samuel Umtiti returned from injury.

Thomas Vermaelen trained with the group but has still not fully recovered from injury, while Rafinha and Ousmane Dembele are both also on the treatment table.

The full squad is as follows: Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Jasper Cillessen; Nelson Semedo, Sergi Roberto, Gerard Pique, Clement Lenglet, Samuel Umtiti, Jordi Alba; Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitic, Arthur, Philippe Coutinho, Arturo Vidal, Carles Alena; Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Malcom.
