The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana welcome Atlético Madrid to Camp Nou for the second leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals hoping to protect a 2-1 first leg lead, and coach Luis Enrique has called 18 players to be in uniform.

This is the squad in full:

Goalkeepers: 13. Jasper Cillessen, 25. Jordi Masip

Defenders: 3. Gerard Piqué, 14. Javier Mascherano, 18. Jordi Alba, 19. Lucas Digne, 20. Sergi Roberto, 22. Aleix Vidal, 23. Samuel Umtiti

Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 6. Denis Suarez, 7. Arda Turan, 8. Andrés Iniesta, 21. André Gomes

Forwards: 9. Luis Suárez, 10. Lionel Messi, 17. Paco Alcácer

The big news is the return of the two most important midfielders on the team: Busquets and Iniesta are back from their injuries and will probably play. Backup left back Lucas Digne is also returning. Neymar is suspended, Rafinha has a broken nose and Ter Stegen and Mathieu miss out per Lucho's decision.
