The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana return to Camp Nou for a big La Liga game against Sevilla, and Ronald Koeman has called up the following 23 players for Sunday’s contest:
Goalkeepers: 13. Neto, 25. Iñaki Peña, 36. Arnau Tenas
Defenders: 2. Sergiño Dest, 3. Gerard Piqué, 18. Jordi Alba, 20. Sergi Roberto, 30. Ronald Araujo, 32. Santiago Mingo
Midfielders: 5. Sergio Busquets, 6. Carles Aleñá, 8. Miralem Pjanic, 14. Philippe Coutinho, 16. Pedri, 21. Frenkie De Jong, 28. Riqui Puig
Forwards: 7. Antoine Griezmann, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Ousmane Dembélé, 17. Francisco Trincão, 19. Martin Braithwaite, 22. Ansu Fati, 29. Konrad De La Fuente
The defense is be looking extremely thin for this one as Clément Lenglet is out due to suspension and there are only three first team defenders available. Also missing out due to injury Marc-André ter Stegen (knee), Junior Firpo (hamstring) and Samuel Umtiti (knee). New signing Sergiño Dest is on the list but may not be available because he’s still waiting to registered by La Liga. That confirmation may come in the next few hours, so we’ll have to wait until kickoff time to find out if the American can play or not.
Predicted starting XI (4-2-3-1):
Neto; Roberto, Piqué, Araujo, Alba; Busquets, De Jong; Griezmann, Coutinho, Ansu Fati; Messi
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.
