Team news

Espanyol: There are no significant injury issues for Espanyol, but there are a couple key pieces that are at risk of suspension if they get a yellow in this game. Those are former Barca defender Aleix Vidal and central midfielder Manu Morlanes. Espanyol enter this game having conceded a goal in 12 straight matches.

Barca: The injury issues remain for Barca, with Clement Lenglet, Ansu Fati, Samuel Umtiti and Sergi Roberto all still out. Memphis Depay has been sidelined for almost a month due to muscular problems as well, but Barcelona are well suited to take on Espanyol thanks to the additions of Ferran, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Adama Traore. On the suspension side, Jordi Alba is a card away from getting a one-game ban, and Dani Alves misses out on this match due to his red card last time out.


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gets his first goal for the club as they take all three points on the road. Pick: Barca 3, Espanyol 1
