The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana have a difficult match on the road against Eibar on Sunday, and coach Luis Enrique has picked his squad for the trip.
Just three days after the match against Rayo Vallecano, also away from home, Enrique is expected to make some heavy rotations on the starting lineup, but all the key first team players are on the list. An important return is Dani Alves, who is back from an automatic ban for card accumulation in midweek and is available and set to start at the Basque Country.
The only big absence is Neymar, who picked up a fifth yellow card and will serve suspension. Douglas Pereira and Adriano Correia have slight knocks and are also out of the game, as well as Jordi Masip (coach's decision) and Rafinha Alcântara (injury).
These are the nineteen men called up by Lucho for the match:
Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 13. Claudio Bravo
Defenders: 3. Gerard Piqué, 6. Dani Alves, 14. Javier Mascherano, 15. Marc Bartra, 18. Jordi Alba, 22. Aleix Vidal, 23. Thomas Vermaelen, 24. Jérémy Mathieu
Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 7. Arda Turan, 8. Andrés Iniesta, 20. Sergi Roberto
Forwards: 9. Luis Suárez, 10. Lionel Messi, 17. Munir El-Haddadi, 19. Sandro Ramírez
Projected Starting Lineup (4-3-3):
Bravo; Alves, Mascherano, Mathieu, Alba; Roberto, Arda, Iniesta; Messi, Suárez, Munir
