Since their last encounter, Barca have signed Ousmane Dembele on Deadline Day, while they loaned out Munir and Douglas.
Espanyol, on the other hand, are still searching for their first win of the season after they draw with Sevilla and lost to Leganes.
Both teams don't have major absentees, although Barca are still without midfielder Rafinha Alcantara.
The last time these two sides met at the Camp Nou, Barca ran out 4-1 winners with Luis Suarez bagging a brace onthe night.
Here's how they line up:
