The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana are in Turin for a crucial UEFA Champions League game against Juventus, and Ernesto Valverde called 19 players on Monday for the trip. One player will be cut from the final matchday squad.

This is the full squad:

Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 13. Jasper Cillessen, 31. Adrián Ortolá

Defenders: 2. Nélson Semedo, 3. Gerard Piqué, 18. Jordi Alba, 19. Lucas Digne, 22. Aleix Vidal, 23. Samuel Umtiti, 25. Thomas Vermaelen

Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 6. Denis Suarez, 8. Andrés Iniesta, 15. Paulinho Bezerra

Forwards: 9. Luis Suárez, 10. Lionel Messi, 16. Gerard Deulofeu, 17. Paco Alcácer

There are no changes to the squad that were in uniform against Leganés, which means that Ousmane Dembélé, Rafinha Alcântara, Sergi Roberto, Javier Mascherano and Arda Turan are still out due to injury. Barça B keeper Ortolá has traveled with the group but will not be in uniform, and we shouldn’t expect a lot of changes from last weekend’s side.

Predicted starting XI (4-4-2):

Ter Stegen; Semedo, Piqué, Umtiti, Alba; Paulinho, Rakitic, Busquets, Iniesta; Messi, Suárez

The game kicks off on Wednesday night at 8:45pm (Barcelona & Nigeria) / 7:45pm (UK) / 2:45pm ET, 11:45am PT (USA) / 1:15am IST (India, Thursday), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
