The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana travel to the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán for a big La Liga match against Sevilla, and Ernesto Valverde has called up 18 players for the trip.
This is the full squad:
Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 13. Jasper Cillessen
Defenders: 2. Nélson Semedo, 3. Gerard Piqué, 18. Jordi Alba, 20. Sergi Roberto, 23. Samuel Umtiti, 25. Thomas Vermaelen

Sergio Busquets and Lucas Digne miss out on this one through injury, while Aleix Vidal and Yerry Mina will not make the trip per the manager’s decision. The great news here is the return of Nélson Semedo, who’s missed more than a month with a muscle injury and is now back with the squad.
Predicted starting XI (4-4-2):
Ter Stegen; Semedo, Piqué, Umtiti, Alba; Dembélé, Rakitic, Paulinho, Coutinho; Messi, Suárez
