The next Barcelona match is upon us! The Blaugrana play a huge La Liga game at home against Atlético Madrid, and Xavi Hernández has called up the following 20 players for Sunday’s clash:


Goalkeepers: 13. Iñaki Peña, 26. Ander Astralaga, 31. Diego Kochen

Defenders: 2. João Cancelo, 3. Alejandro Balde, 4. Ronald Araujo, 5. Iñigo Martínez, 15. Andreas Christensen, 23. Jules Kounde

Midfielders: 8. Pedri, 18. Oriol Romeu, 20. Sergi Roberto, 21. Frenkie de Jong, 22. Ilkay Gündogan, 32. Fermín López

Forwards: 7. Ferran Torres, 9. Robert Lewandowski, 11. Raphinha, 14. João Félix, 27. Lamine Yamal


Barça will be without the world’s best goalkeeper for the third straight game as Marc-André ter Stegen (back) has not recovered in time and misses out again. He joins Gavi (knee) and Marcos Alonso (undisclosed) on the list of absentees for this one, and Xavi calls up young Diego Kochen from Barça Atlètic as the third goalkeeper.

Predicted starting XI (4-3-3):

Peña; Araujo, Kounde, Iñigo, Cancelo; Pedri, De Jong, Gündogan; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Félix


The match kicks off at 9pm CET/WAT (Barcelona & Nigeria), 8pm GMT (UK), 3pm ET, 12pm PT (USA), 1.30am IST (India, Monday), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
