The next Barcelona match is upon us! First game at Camp Nou for the Treble winners this season, as the Blaugrana play at home for the first time since the Copa del Rey Final against Athletic Bilbao, more than two long months ago. The Catalan giants face AS Roma in the 50th edition of the Joan Gamper Trophy.
This traditional event follows the official presentation of the squad to the fans, which is the reason why coach Luis Enrique has named all available members to the match. Injured duo Douglas Pereira and Arda Turan will not be in uniform, but will be at the Camp Nou. While the squad list hasn't officially been released by the club, it is expected that a few Barça B youngsters such as Sergi Samper, Alen Halilovic and Gerard Gumbau will join the group, but we'll only find that out at gametime.
For now, these are the first team squad members likely to be nominated:
Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 13. Claudio Bravo, 25. Jordi Masip
Defenders: 3. Gerard Piqué, 6. Dani Alves, 14. Javier Mascherano, 15. Marc Bartra, 18. Jordi Alba, 21. Adriano Correia, 23. Thomas Vermaelen, 24. Jérémy Mathieu
Midfiedlers: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 8. Andrés Iniesta, 12. Rafinha Alcântara, 20. Sergi Roberto
Forwards: 7. Pedro Rodríguez, 9. Luis Suárez, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Neymar Jr., 16. Sandro Ramírez, 17. Munir El-Haddadi
The match starts at 21:00 CET, and you can follow and comment the match right here, at Barça Blaugranes.
