The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana travel to the Vicente Calderón for the last time in La Liga as they face off against Atlético Madrid in a crucial match, and coach Luis Enrique has called up 18 players to be in uniform.

This is the squad in full:

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

Defenders: 3. Gerard Piqué, 18. Jordi Alba, 19. Lucas Digne, 20. Sergi Roberto, 23. Samuel Umtiti, 24. Jérémy Mathieu

Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 6. Denis Suarez, 8. Andrés Iniesta, 12. Rafinha Alcântara, 21. André Gomes

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

Sergio Busquets is back from suspension and is in the squad and the probable starting lineup. Busi is the only of the absentees from last Sunday's match against Leganés to return, as Javier Mascherano and Arda Turan are still a few days away from making their comebacks. Aleix Vidal is out for the season, and obviously also this game.


Projected starting lineup (4-3-3):

Ter Stegen; Roberto, Piqué, Umtiti, Alba; Busquets, Gomes, Iniesta; Messi, Suárez, Neymar

The match starts at 4:15PM CET / 3:15PM BST (UK) / 10:15AM EST, 7:15AM PST (USA) / 8:45PM IST (India), and you are welcome to join us and follow all the action.
