The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana are right back in action after a crazy El Clásico and will face Villarreal at Camp Nou looking to continue their quest for an unbeaten La Liga campaign, and Ernesto Valverde has called up 18 players for the match.
This is the full squad:
Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 13. Jasper Cillessen
Defenders: 2. Nélson Semedo, 3. Gerard Piqué, 18. Jordi Alba, 19. Lucas Digne, 24. Yerry Mina, 25. Thomas Vermaelen
