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

Defenders: 2. Nélson Semedo, 3. Gerard Piqué, 6. Jean-Clair Todibo, 15. Clément Lenglet, 16. Moussa Wagué, 24. Junior Firpo

*One player will be cut from the official 18-man matchday squad, and the favorite is Wagué.

There are some bad, bad news ahead of a very tough game: Lionel Messi (groin) and Ansu Fati (knee) are OUT for this one, and they are joined in the injured list by Jordi Alba (hamstring) and Samuel Umtiti (foot). Some changes are expected with the Champions League match against Inter Milan right around the corner.
