Alen Halilovic is the biggest surprise.

Jasper Juinen

UEFA's official website have released the squads for all 32 teams that are going to play in the Champions League. Barcelona's roster has one big surprise: Alen Halilovic. The 17-year-old has been selected to the 25-men main squad, and he will be available to play if Luis Enrique wishes.

The squad rules by UEFA state that a team can select 25 players for an A-list, plus a B-list for young players, that teams can fill with anyone they want. The reason why Halilovic is on the A-list is because he hasn't been at the club for more than two years. For that reason, Lucho put him in the A-list. That doesn't mean he has bigger chances of playing than the B-list guys, it's just formality.

Barça has named a total of 31 players. Here is the list:

A-List:

Goalkeepers: 1. Stegen, 13. Bravo, 25. Masip;

Defenders: 2. Montoya, 3. Piqué, 14. Javier Mascherano, 15. Marc Bartra, 16. Douglas, 18. Alba, 21. Adriano, 22. Alves, 23. Vermaelen, 24. Mathieu, 33. Diagné;

Midfielders: 4.Rakitic, 5. Busquets, 6. Xavi, 8. Iniesta, 12. Rafinha, 20. Sergi Roberto, 30. Halilovic;

B-List:

26. Samper, 27. Adama, 28. Grimaldo, 29. Sandro, 31. Munir, 32. Ié;
