FC Barcelona will play its second practice match under Ronald Koeman on Wednesday evening at 19.00 hours. Frenkie de Jong starts in the base, in contrast to last Saturdays game with Nástic.
The duel with Girona is the second test for Barcelona and Koeman. De Jong and Sergio Busquets are in midfield together. In the front we find Trincão, Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho. Barcelona rejoins Girona in a 4-2-3-1 system.
As we know, Luis Suárez is once again absent. The Uruguyan seems to be leaving Catalonia. Arturo Vidal is also missing, reportedly because he is busy with a transfer to Internazionale.
Barcelona will play next Saturday against Elche for the Trofeu Juan Gamper. The Primera Division will start for the Catalans on 27 September with a game against Villarreal.
Setup Barcelona: Neto, S. Roberto, Piqué, R. Araujo, Alba, De Jong, Busquets, Trincão Griezmann, Messi, Coutinho
