The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana are back in action in La Liga with a home game against Cádiz, and Ronald Koeman has called up the following 21 players for Sunday’s clash:
Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 13. Neto, 26. Iñaki Peña
Defenders: 2. Sergiño Dest, 3. Gerard Piqué, 15. Clément Lenglet, 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
Forwards: 7. Antoine Griezmann, 9. Martin Braithwaite, 10. Lionel Messi, 11. Ousmane Dembélé, 17. Francisco Trincão
There were no injuries in the PSG game which is good news for this team, so Koeman is able to call up the same squad for consecutive matches which has been rare this season. Ansu Fati (knee), Philippe Coutinho (knee), Sergi Roberto (thigh) and Ronald Araujo (ankle) miss this one out through injury.
Predicted starting XI (4-3-3):
Ter Stegen; Dest, Piqué, Lenglet, Alba; Pjanic, De Jong, Pedri; Trincão, Messi, Dembélé
The match kicks off at 2pm CET/WAT (Barcelona & Nigeria), 1pm GMT (UK), 8am ET, 5am PT (USA), 6.30pm IST (India), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
