The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana have a difficult trip to Seville to face Real Bétis this Saturday, and coach Luis Enrique has picked his squad for the game.

It's a list with no surprises from the manager, who is expected to name his best starting eleven. But there's one pleasant surprise: full-back Aleix Vidal returns to the list after almost a month out of action because of personal issues. He seems to have regained the trust from the coaching staff and is now back in the squad, although he's not likely to start. Vidal's return means Douglas Pereira is out of the list again per coach's decision, along with Jordi Masip, Adriano Correia and Thomas Vermaelen. Jérémy Mathieu and Sandro Ramírez are injured and will not feature as well.

These are the eighteen men called up by Enrique for Saturday:

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

Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 7. Arda Turan, 8. Andrés Iniesta, 12. Rafinha Alcântara, 20. Sergi Roberto

Forwards: 9. Luis Suárez, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Neymar Jr., 17. Munir El-Haddadi

Projected Starting Lineup (4-3-3):

Bravo; Alves, Piqué, Mascherano, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Messi, Suárez, Neymar

The match starts at 20:30 CET, and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
