The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana open up the Camp Nou doors for Getafe to end the April Marathon on a high note. Given the weakness of the opponent, expect Luis Enrique to make some changes, which we already saw on the squad list released today for the match.
Despite being cleared by the doctors to play, Thomas Vermaelen will not make his debut today. The Belgium defender will have to wait a little bit to appear on the field. Also not joining the squad along with Vermaelen are Jordi Masip, Douglas Pereira, Jordi Alba (suspended) and Gerard Piqué.
These are the eighteen men named by Lucho for the game:
Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 13. Claudio Bravo
Defenders: 2. Martín Montoya, 14. Javier Mascherano, 15. Marc Bartra, 21. Adriano Correia, 22. Dani Alves, 24. Jérémy Mathieu
Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 6. Xavi Hernández, 8. Andrés Iniesta, 12. Rafinha Alcântara, 20. Sergi Roberto
Forwards: 7. Pedro Rodríguez, 9. Luis Suárez, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Neymar Jr.
Expected Starting Lineup (4-3-3) and substitutes:
Bravo; Alves, Bartra, Mathieu, Adriano; Mascherano, Rakitic, Xavi; Pedro, Messi, Neymar
Bench: Stegen; Montoya, Busquets, Iniesta, Roberto, Rafinha, Neymar
