The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana play a tough La Liga game at home against Levante needing a win to keep pace with the leaders, and Quique Setién has called up the following 18 players to be in uniform:
Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 26. Iñaki Peña
Defenders: 2. Nélson Semedo, 3. Gerard Piqué, 15. Clément Lenglet, 18. Jordi Alba, 23. Samuel Umtiti, 24. Junior Firpo
Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 8. Arthur, 20. Sergi Roberto, 21. Frenkie De Jong, 28. Riqui Puig, 30. Álex Collado
Forwards: 10. Lionel Messi, 17. Antoine Griezmann, 31. Ansu Fati
There are no surprises on this list, with midfielder Arturo Vidal indeed missing the game after not training on Saturday with a thigh bruise. His absence opens the door for Riqui Puig to return, along with Collado and Ansu Fati from Barça B. Luis Suárez (knee), Ousmane Dembélé (hamstring) and Neto (ankle) miss out through injury.
Predicted starting XI (4-3-3):
Ter Stegen; Roberto, Piqué, Umtiti, Alba; Rakitic, De Jong, Arthur; Messi, Griezmann, Ansu Fati
The match kicks off at 9pm CET/WAT (Barcelona & Nigeria), 8pm GMT (UK), 3pm ET, 12pm PT (USA), 1.30am IST (India, Monday), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
VISCA EL BARÇA!
