The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana play the final game of La Liga this season with a trip to Eibar, and Ernesto Valverde has called up the following 19 players for the game, with one of them cut from the final matchday squad:

Goalkeepers: 13. Jasper Cillessen, 30. Iñaki Peña

Defenders: 2. Nélson Semedo, 3. Gerard Piqué, 6. Jean-Clair Todibo, 15. Clément Lenglet, 18. Jordi Alba, 23. Samuel Umtiti, 40. Moussa Wagué

Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 20. Sergi Roberto, 21. Carles Aleñá, 22. Arturo Vidal, 28. Riqui Puig

Forwards: 10. Lionel Messi, 14. Malcom, 29. Abel Ruiz, 43. Carles Pérez

There are plenty of absences for this one, so Valverde gave a few kids from Barça B a chance to play first team football. Missing out due to injury are Marc-André ter Stegen, Philippe Coutinho, Arthur, Luis Suárez, Ousmane Dembélé, Rafinha and Kevin-Prince Boateng, while Jeison Murillo and Thomas Vermaelen didn’t make the trip per the manager’s decision.

Predicted starting XI (4-3-3):

Cillessen; Semedo, Todibo, Umtiti, Alba; Aleñá, Rakitic, Puig; Malcom, Messi, Ruiz

The match kicks off at 4.15pm CET (Barcelona), 3.15pm BST/WAT (UK & Nigeria), 10.15am ET, 7.15am PT (USA), 7.45pm IST (India), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
