The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana return to action in La Liga with a huge game against Sevilla at Camp Nou, and Ernesto Valverde has called up the following 19 players* for Sunday:

Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 13. Neto

Defenders: 2. Nélson Semedo, 3. Gerard Piqué, 6. Jean-Clair Todibo, 18. Jordi Alba, 33. Ronald Araujo

Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 8. Arthur, 20. Sergi Roberto, 21. Frenkie De Jong, 22. Arturo Vidal

Forwards: 9. Luis Suárez, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Ousmane Dembélé, 17. Antoine Griezmann, 27. Carles Pérez, 31. Ansu Fati

*Only 18 players can be in uniform, so one of them will be cut from the final matchday squad. The favorite: Carles Pérez

There’s some very good news for this one with the return of Jordi Alba and Ansu Fati from their injuries, which is a big boost on both ends of the squad. Lenglet is suspended for his red card last week, so Barça B’s Ronald Araujo is called up to be the third center-back for this one. The other absentees are Samuel Umtiti (foot), Junior Firpo (hamstring), Carles Aleñá (technical decision) and Moussa Wagué (technical decision).

Predicted starting XI (4-3-3):

Ter Stegen; Semedo, Piqué, Todibo, Alba; Vidal, De Jong, Arthur; Messi, Suárez, Griezmann

The match kicks off at 9pm CET (Barcelona), 8pm BST/WAT (UK & Nigeria), 3pm ET, 12pm PT (USA), 12.30am IST (India, Monday), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
