The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana travel to Seville for a giant La Liga game against Sevilla that will have big title implications, and Ernesto Valverde has called up the following 18 players to be in uniform on Saturday:
Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 30. Iñaki Peña
Defenders: 2. Nélson Semedo, 3. Gerard Piqué, 15. Clément Lenglet, 17. Jeison Murillo, 18. Jordi Alba, 23. Samuel Umtiti

Forwards: 9. Luis Suárez, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Ousmane Dembélé, 14. Malcom
There are no fresh injury concerns following the Champions League game in Lyon, so Valverde had an easy selection.
