Barcelona have been handed a boost ahead of Sunday’s visit from Getafe in La Liga as Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Philippe Coutinho, and Oscar Mingueza are all in the squad.

The trio have all missed the start of the 2021-22 season because of injury but are now fit and will be hoping for minutes at the Camp Nou.

Ter Stegen could go straight into the starting XI, replacing Neto, while Mingueza is an option in defense with Gerard Pique out and Eric Garcia suspended.

Coutinho could also get his first minutes of 2021 after coming back from knee surgery. Koeman has decisions to make in midfield with Pedri currently taking a break.

If Coutinho plays then he could end up wearing the No. 10 shirt which has not been used yet since Lionel Messi’s departure from the club this summer.

Ronald Koeman was asked if Coutinho would take the No. 10 at his pre-match press conference but insisted he “didn’t know” and it was up to the club to decide.
