After a far from perfect start to La Liga life against the Basque brothers, Barcelona will host Getafe at the Camp Nou for the third gameweek of the league – the final one before the International Break commences.
To Barça fans’ delight, Marc-Andre ter Stegen makes a return to the team and is likely to start in goal over Neto. The Brazilian had a tough time trying to build from the back with his feet.
Miralem Pjanic and Samuel Umtiti also make a comeback to the list, but their inclusion probably will not go down very well with the fans. Both were linked with a move away, but it seems the Blaugranas have given up on their departures.
Philippe Coutinho, too, returns. Ronald Koeman did not shy away from revealing that he will be counting on the former Liverpool ace this season if he ended up staying. What is still unknown is the jersey number he will take up.
Meanwhile, Oscar Mingueza has been given the green light post-injury but will count as a representative for Barcelona B.
Full squad: ter Stegen, Neto, Pena; Dest, Emerson, Araujo, Lenglet, Mingueza, Umtiti, Alba; Busquets, de Jong, Puig, Pjanic, Coutinho, Roberto, Nico, Gavi; Griezmann, Braithwaite, Memphis, Manaj, Demir
