The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana look to remain leaders of La Liga in a pivotal match at Camp Nou against Valencia, and coach Luis Enrique has picked his squad for the game.
It's a list with no surprises from the manager, and he had no options to make any changes. Only 16 outfield players are available for this Sunday's game, which means Douglas Pereira is in the squad for the second straight match. Arda Turan is suspended, with Jérémy Mathieu, Thomas Vermaelen, Rafinha Alcântara and Sandro Ramírez sidelined with injuries.
These are the eighteen players called up by Enrique for the match:
Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 13. Claudio Bravo
Defenders: 2. Douglas Pereira, 3. Gerard Piqué, 6. Dani Alves, 14. Javier Mascherano, 15. Marc Bartra, 18. Jordi Alba, 21. Adriano Correia, 22. Aleix Vidal
Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 8. Andrés Iniesta, 20. Sergi Roberto
Forwards: 9. Luis Suárez, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Neymar Jr, 17. Munir El-Haddadi
Projected Starting Lineup (4-3-3):
Bravo; Vidal, Piqué, Bartra, Alba; Roberto, Rakitic, Iniesta; Messi, Suárez, Neymar
