The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana are back on the road for another La Liga game against Granada, and Ronald Koeman has called up the following 21 players for Saturday’s clash:


Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 13. Neto, 26. Iñaki Peña

Defenders: 2. Sergiño Dest, 4. Ronald Araujo, 18. Jordi Alba, 23. Samuel Umtiti, 24. Junior Firpo, 28. Óscar Mingueza

Midfielders: 5. Sergio Busquets, 8. Miralem Pjanic, 12. Riqui Puig, 16. Pedri, 19. Matheus Fernandes, 21. Frenkie De Jong, 27. Ilaix Moriba

Forwards: 7. Antoine Griezmann, 9. Martin Braithwaite, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Ousmane Dembélé, 17. Francisco Trincão, 29. Konrad De La Fuente


For the third straight game Barcelona have no injury issues to worry about which is great news, but Koeman doesn’t get to call up the same players for this one since Clément Lenglet is suspended for yellow card accumulation. Ansu Fati (knee), Gerard Piqué (knee), Philippe Coutinho (knee) and Sergi Roberto (thigh) are out due to injury. The big news is the first ever call-up for Barça B midfielder Ilaix Moriba, who gets a chance in the first team after Carles Aleñá’s departure.

Predicted starting XI (4-3-3):

Ter Stegen; Dest, Araujo, Mingueza, Alba; De Jong, Busquets, Pedri; Dembélé, Messi, Griezmann


The match kicks off at 6.30pm CET/WAT (Barcelona & Nigeria), 5.30pm GMT (UK), 12.30pm ET, 9.30am PT (USA), 11pm IST (India), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
