The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana return to action in La Liga with what promises to be a very away game against Real Betis, and Quique Setién has called up the following 18 players to be in uniform on Sunday:

Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 26. Iñaki Peña

Defenders: 2. Nélson Semedo, 15. Clément Lenglet, 18. Jordi Alba, 23. Samuel Umtiti, 24. Junior Firpo, 33. Ronald Araujo

Midfielders: 4. ivan Rakitic, 5. Sergio Busquets, 8. Arthur, 20. Sergi Roberto, 21. Frenkie De Jong, 22. Arturo Vidal, 28. Riqui Puig

Forwards: 10. Lionel Messi, 17. Antoine Griezmann, 31. Ansu Fati

The big news for this one is the absence of Gerard Piqué, who is suspended and injured and has not made the trip to Seville. Also out due to injury are Luis Suárez (knee), Neto (ankle) and Ousmane Dembélé (hamstring). Arturo Vidal is back after missing the last two games with a thigh injury, and Riqui Puig is preferred to Álex Collado for this one.

Predicted starting XI (4-3-3):

Ter Stegen; Semedo, Umtiti, Lenglet, Alba; De Jong, Busquets, Arthur; Roberto, Messi, Griezmann
