The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana welcome Real Sociedad to Camp Nou for the second leg of the Copa Del Rey quarterfinals, hoping to defend a one-goal lead and advance to the semifinals. Luis Enrique has called 18 players to be in uniform in this match.
This is the squad in full:
Goalkeepers: 13. Jasper Cillessen, 25. Jordi Masip
