The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana begin a new era as they welcome Deportivo Alavés to Camp Nou for a big La Liga game, and interim manager Sergi Barjuan has called up the following 22 players for Saturday’s match:


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

Defenders: 2. Sergiño Dest, 3. Gerard Piqué, 15. Clément Lenglet, 18. Jordi Alba, 22. Óscar Mingueza, 23. Samuel Umtiti, 24. Eric García, 31. Alejandro Balde

Midfielders: 5. Sergio Busquets, 6. Riqui Puig, 11. Yusuf Demir, 14. Philippe Coutinho, 28. Nico González, 30. Gavi, 34. Álvaro Sanz

Forwards: 9. Memphis Depay, 17. Luuk De Jong, 19. Sergio Agüero, 33. Ez Abde


There are two new names on the list as Barjuan brings two young players with him from Barça B in midfielder Álvaro Sanz and winger Ez Abde. The two have been called up due to several injuries in the squad for this one, as Pedri (thigh), Ansu Fati (knee), Frenkie De Jong (hamstring), Ronald Araujo (hamstring), Sergi Roberto (thigh) and Martin Braithwaite (knee) all miss out. Ousmane Dembélé (knee) is back in training but not quite ready to return to the squad yet.

Predicted starting XI (4-3-3):

Ter Stegen; Dest, Piqué, García, Alba; Gavi, Busquets, Coutinho; Demir, Agüero, Memphis


The match kicks off at 9pm CET (Barcelona), 8pm BST/WAT (UK & Nigeria), 3pm ET, 12pm PT (USA), 12.30am IST (India, Sunday), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
