The second and final week of the international break starts today, and plenty of Barcelona players will be in action. Ivan Rakitic will represent Croatia against Turkey, and five other Blaugrana stars could play for La Roja today.
Spain takes on Liechtenstein in the opening match of the European Qualifiers. The Spaniards are the overwhelming favorites to win this game and have a deep, talented squad with a new manager that is eager to maintain Spain as one of the top teams in world football while renovating the side with new, exciting players.
But while the renovation is happening, a few players that form the core of the team will continue to be important. Piqué, Busquets and Jordi Alba are the Barça players that will play tonight and remain integral to the side, and will probably be undisputed starters until the 2018 World Cup, but they need to qualify first. They'll take the first step today, and you should be watching it.
