We are now in the international break, but as soon as the players return from their national teams, we will kick off the best club competition on Earth, and 2016/17 edition of the UEFA Champions League will certainly be exciting.

Barcelona have been drawn in the Group of Death alongside Manchester City, Celtic FC and Borussia Mönchengladbach, and the Blaugrana will have six very difficult group stage matches, for which you need a really good squad in order to survive those matches while still staying at the top in the domestic league.

Barça did just that in the transfer market, signing six young, hungry and talented players that will make the Catalan giants' squad even stronger than it already was. And that squad was submitted to UEFA on Friday, along with 8 players on a B List with young players that don't need to be a the senior squad but can play in the European Cup.

This is the full list, along with the kit numbers registered for each player:

A-LIST

1. Ter Stegen, 3.Piqué, 4.Rakitic, 5.Sergio, 6.Denis Suárez, 7.Arda, 8.A.Iniesta, 9.Suárez, 10.Messi, 11.Neymar Jr, 12.Rafinha, 13.Cillessen, 14.Mascherano, 17.Paco Alcácer, 18.Jordi Alba, 19.Digne, 20.Sergi Roberto, 21.André Gomes, 22.Aleix Vidal, 23.Umtiti, 24.Mathieu, 25.Masip

B-LIST

26.J Suárez, 27.Kaptoum, 28.Aleñá, 29.Cardona, 30.Carbonell, 32.Nili, 33.Marlon, 34.Palencia

There are unlimited changes allowed to the B-List, but they must be made at least 24 hours prior to each Champions League match. A-List changes can only be made if a player is signed and is not Cup-tied, meaning he played for another team in the same Champions League season.
