The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana have a huge challenge against Real Sociedad in the Basque Country, and coach Luis Enrique has named his best squad for the match.
With only one big absence in Luis Suárez (suspended for yellow card accumulation), the coach was able to call his best eighteen to the trip, including Adriano Correia, medically cleared and available to selection. Enrique is expected to make a few rotations to the starting lineup ahead of the Champions League game against Atlético Madrid, but he still won't use Douglas Pereira and Jordi Masip, who once again stay out. Sandro Ramírez, Jérémy Mathieu and Aleix Vidal are still injured.
These are the eighteen men called up by Lucho for the game:
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, 21. Adriano Correia, 23. Thomas Vermaelen
Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 7. Arda Turan, 8. Andrés Iniesta, 12. Rafinha Alcântara, 20. Sergi Roberto
Forwards: 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Neymar Jr., 17. Munir El-Haddadi
Projected Starting Lineup (4-3-3):
Bravo; Alves, Piqué, Vermaelen, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Roberto; Messi, Munir, Neymar
VISCA EL BARÇA!
