The big game is here. On Saturday, Barcelona and Juventus will go for the treble as they clash at the historical Olympic Stadium of Berlin, Germany, in the UEFA Champions League Final. For the biggest game of the season, Barça coach Luis Enrique has his whole squad available, and he's taking everyone on the plane.

Lucho released the squad list, and as usual for a Champions League trip, the boss is taking every one of the 23 first-team players with him to the trip. Alongside the big boys, B-team youngsters Sergi Samper, Sandro Ramírez and Munir El-Haddadi will also be in Berlin for the game of the year.

Thankfully, Enrique will have no injury issues to worry about. Andrés Iniesta is cleared and fully available for selection, and his calf issue is part of the past.

You know them all, but just in case these are the 26 men named by Lucho to form the squad for the Final. Just a few hours before the game, 8 of them will be cut, and a final 18-player squad will be in uniform:

Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 13. Claudio Bravo, 25. Jordi Masip

Defenders: 2. Martín Montoya, 3. Gerard Piqué, 14. Javier Mascherano, 15. Marc Bartra, 16. Douglas Pereira, 18. Jordi Alba, 21. Adriano Correia, 22. Dani Alves, 23. Thomas Vermaelen, 24. Jérémy Mathieu

Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 6. Xavi Hernández, 8. Andrés Iniesta, 12. Rafinha Alcântara, 20. Sergi Roberto, 26. Sergi Samper

Forwards: 7. Pedro Rodríguez, 9. Luis Suárez, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Neymar Jr., 29. Sandro Ramírez, 31. Munir El-Haddadi
