Franck Kessie had a thigh injury in Plzen and had to be replaced after 67 minutes, proving that Xavi could not escape the injury curse even after a big rotation in midweek.
Sergi Roberto (shoulder), Ronald Araujo (thigh), and Eric Garcia (groin) will all be sidelined in addition to the Ivorian; however, Jules Kounde, Andreas Christensen, and Memphis Depay may be able to make the bench.
In any case, Gerard Pique will unquestionably start in the center of defense as he bids a final farewell to Camp Nou.
