The next Barcelona is upon us! The Blaugrana are 90 minutes away from lifting the Spanish Super Cup trophy against Sevilla at Camp Nou, and coach Luis Enrique has already called up his squad for the match.
It's a list without any surprises from Lucho, who called his best available players. Without the injured Iniesta and Mathieu, Jordi Alba and Sergi Samper have been added to the list.
