The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana open the Camp Nou doors today to welcome Deportivo La Coruña for the final La Liga game of the season. A title-winning campaign gets wrapped up today, and coach Luis Enrique has called up the squad for the clash.
As expected, Lucho made a deep rotation and left many heavy-minute players out of the squad to preserve them for the next two finals ahead. Marc-André ter Stegen, Dani Alves, Gerard Piqué, Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suárez will all watch the game from the stands. The big star of the squad is Xavi Hernández, who makes his final La Liga appearance and will be honored at the end of the match.
These are the eighteen men named by Lucho to be in uniform today:
Goalkeepers: 13. Claudio Bravo, 25. Jordi Masip
Defenders: 2. Martín Montoya, 14. Javier Mascherano, 15. Marc Bartra, 16. Douglas Pereira, 18. Jordi Alba, 21. Adriano Correia, 23. Thomas Vermaelen, 24. Jérémy Mathieu
Midfielders: 6. Xavi Hernández, 8. Andrés Iniesta, 12. Rafinha Alcântara, 20. Sergi Roberto
Forwards: 7. Pedro Rodríguez, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Neymar Jr., 31. Munir El-Haddadi
Projected Starting Lineup (4-3-3):
