And the lineups are here!
Barcelona starting lineup: 25. Masip | 22. Aleix Vidal, 12. JA Martínez, 24. Mathieu, 20. Sergi Roberto | 6. Denis Suarez, 7. Arda Turan, 18. Juan Cámara | 10. Messi, 9. Luis Suárez, 17. Munir
Celtic starting lineup: Gordon | Janko, Ambrose, O'Connell, Izaguirre | Brown, Bitton, McGregor | Roberts, Griffiths, Forrest
Luis Enrique's first starting lineup for the new season is young and hungry, with academy youngsters (Martínez, Cámara), Denis Suarez at pivote and Munir looking to prove himself as a worthy backup forward. Sergi Roberto is now a full-back, and he starts on the left, as Aleix Vidal looks to become an undisputed starting right-back. Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez start, and will look to kick off preseason with some goals.
