Ernesto Valverde's charges are the team left in the Spanish top flight with a 100% record, winning their opening five games.

Barca, however, were involved in UEFA Champions League earlier this week, as hat-trick from Lionel Messi inspired them to a 4-0 win over PSV Eindhoven.

Girona seemed to have hit their stride in LaLiga after a shaky start to the campaign.

After recording a draw and a loss in their opening two games, Girona recorded back-to-back victories over Villarreal and Celta Vigo.

Barca enjoy a good record over their Catalan neighbours, having won all four previous meetings, the last of which was 6-0 drubbing at the Camp Nou last season.

Here's how they line up:

Barca: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Pique, Lenglet, Alba, Busquets, Arthur, Vidal, Dembele, Messi, L.Suarez.

Girona: Bono; A. Benítez, Bernardo, Alcalá, Juanpe, Muniesa; Pere Pons, A. García, Granell; Portu, Stuani.
