The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana travel to the Andalusia for a crucial La Liga match against Real Betis, and coach Luis Enrique called up 18 players for the trip.

This is the squad in full:

Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 13. Jasper Cillessen

Defenders: 3. Gerard Piqué, 14. Javier Mascherano, 18. Jordi Alba, 19. Lucas Digne, 20. Sergi Roberto, 22. Aleix Vidal, 23. Samuel Umtiti, 24. Jérémy Mathieu

Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 6. Denis Suarez, 7. Arda Turan, 21. André Gomes

Forwards: 9. Luis Suárez, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Neymar Jr., 17. Paco Alcácer

The only change from Thursday's Copa del Rey win against Real Sociedad is on goal, with Ter Stegen returning to his usual league duties and Jordi Masip staying home. No changes in the injury department as Sergio Busquets, Andrés Iniesta and Rafinha Alcântara are still out with physical problems. It's really short in midfield right now.


Projected starting lineup (4-3-3):

Ter Stegen

Vidal - Piqué - Mathieu - Alba

Rakitic - Mascherano - Arda

Messi - Suárez - Neymar

The match starts at 12pm CET / 11am BST (UK) / 6am ET, 3am PT (US) / 4:30pm IST (India), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
