UEFA has confirmed all of the squads for the 2021-22 Champions League group stages and there’s plenty of young talent on the Barcelona roster.

The Catalan giants have been drawn in Group E and will take on Bayern Munich, Benfica, and Dynamo Kiev for a place in the knockout stages.

There are few surprises on Barca’s List A for the Champions League with all the first-teamers named (even Miralem Pjanic despite the fact he’s moved to Besiktas).

The B list is more interesting with youngsters Arnau Tenas, Alejandro Balde, Gavi, and Nico Gonzalez all included.

Here’s the full list (via UEFA)

Goalkeepers: Ter Stegen, Neto, Pena, Tenas.

Defenders: Dest, Pique, Araujo, Lenglet, Alba, Mingueza, Umtiti, Garcia, Balde.

Midfielders: Busquets, Puig, Pjanic, Roberto, De Jong, Nico, Gavi.

Attackers: Dembele, Memphis, Ansu, Demir, Braithwaite, Coutinho, Pedri, Luuk de Jong, Aguero.

Barca’s first game of the group stages is against Bayern at the Camp Nou on September 14.
