The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana are back to action in the Champions League with their final away game in the group stage against Ferencváros, and Ronald Koeman has called up the following 20 players for the trip to Hungary:
Goalkeepers: 13. Neto, 26. Iñaki Peña, 36. Arnau Tenas
Defenders: 2. Sergiño Dest, 15. Clément Lenglet, 18. Jordi Alba, 24. Junior Firpo, 28. Óscar Mingueza
Midfielders: 5. Sergio Busquets, 6. Carles Aleñá, 8. Miralem Pjanic, 12. Riqui Puig, 16. Pedri, 19. Matheus Fernandes, 21. Frenkie De Jong
Forwards: 7. Antoine Griezmann, 9. Martin Braithwaite, 11. Ousmane Dembélé, 17. Francisco Trincão, 29. Konrad De La Fuente

Ansu Fati (knee), Gerard Piqué (knee), Sergi Roberto (thigh), Ronald Araujo (hamstring) and Samuel Umtiti (knee) miss out through injury.
Predicted starting XI (4-2-3-1):
