The Frenchman started the game on the bench but replaced Lionel Messi in the second half and set up Ivan Rakitic’s goal late on.

Valverde says no major problem with Pique (taken off at half time) or Dembele (looked in pain at the end of the game).

Having been out for such a long time the club will be wary that he may pick up a niggle, but it sounds as though he’s ok and should be fit for Sunday.
