The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana start their UEFA Champions League quarterfinals against Atlético Madrid, and coach Luis Enrique has selected his squad for the game.

There are no surprises on the list, although Enrique did not really have a choice. Of his 24 squad members, four are sidelined with injuries, with Aleix Vidal the latest to pick up a knock alongside Jérémy Mathieu, Adriano Correia and Sandro Ramírez. With no suspension problems to worry about, Enrique had an easier decision of who to leave out, and he picked the usual suspects, Douglas Pereira and Jordi Masip, to watch the game from the stands.

These are the eighteen 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, 23. Thomas Vermaelen

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):

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

The match starts at 20:45 CET, and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
