The versatile midfielder sat out Barcelona’s 5-0 win against their local rivals on Saturday but trained on Sunday.

“We think Sergi Roberto will be available, he trained well yesterday,” Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde told a news conference on the eve of the game at the Nou Camp.

However, striker Paco Alcacer missed Monday’s session with a stomach bug according to local media reports and is doubtful.

Barcelona and Juventus have been placed in Group D of the Champions League draw  alongside Sporting Clube de Portugal and Olympiacos FC.
