The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana return to action in La Liga with a home game against Getafe at Camp Nou, and Ronald Koeman has called up the following 23 players for Sunday’s clash:
Goalkeepers: Marc-André ter Stegen, Neto, Iñaki Peña
Defenders: Sergiño Dest, Ronald Araujo, Clément Lenglet, Jordi Alba, Emerson Royal, Samuel Umtiti, Óscar Mingueza
Midfielders: Sergio Busquets, Riqui Puig, Miralem Pjanic, Philippe Coutinho, Sergi Roberto, Frenkie De Jong, Yusuf Demir, Nico González, Gavi
Forwards: Antoine Griezmann, Memphis Depay, Martin Braithwaite, Rey Manaj
There’s some very good news for this one as Ter Stegen is cleared to play after recovering from offseason knee surgery, while Mingueza is also back from a spell on the sidelines with a hamstring injury and Philippe Coutinho is called up for the first time in 10 months after a knee injury. Still out for this one through injury are Gerard Piqué (calf), Ansu Fati (knee), Sergio Agüero (calf) and Ousmane Dembélé (knee), while Eric García misses out through suspension. Pedri is on vacation, while Ilaix Moriba and Álex Collado miss out per the manager’s decision.
Predicted starting XI (4-3-3):
Ter Stegen; Dest, Araujo, Lenglet, Alba; Roberto, Busquets, De Jong; Griezmann, Memphis, Braithwaite
The match kicks off at 5pm CET (Barcelona), 4pm BST/WAT (UK & Nigeria), 11am ET, 8am PT (USA), 8.30pm IST (India), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
