The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana welcome Getafe to Camp Nou for a huge La Liga game at both ends of the table, and Ronald Koeman has called up the following 23 players for Thursday’s clash:

Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-André ter Stegen, 26. Iñaki Peña, 36. Arnau Tenas

Defenders: 2. Sergiño Dest, 3. Gerard Piqué, 4. Ronald Araujo, 15. Clément Lenglet, 18. Jordi Alba, 20. Sergi Roberto, 23. Samuel Umtiti, 24. Junior Firpo, 28. Óscar Mingueza

Forwards: 7. Antoine Griezmann, 10. Lionel Messi, 17. Francisco Trincão, 29. Konrad De La Fuente

There’s some bad news for this one as Martin Braithwaite and Ousmane Dembélé miss out, the Danish forward due to an ankle injury suffered in training and the Frenchman due to some lingering groin issues that caused to play a limited role in the Cup Final. Also out because of injury are Ansu Fati (knee), Philippe Coutinho (knee) and Neto (ankle).

Predicted starting XI (3-5-2):

Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Piqué, Lenglet; Dest, De Jong, Busquets, Pedri, Alba; Messi, Griezmann
