The attack is where it gets interesting for the team. Martin Braithwaite is still injured and Torres is just coming back from Covid quarantine. It remains to be seen if the new transfer will debut against Madrid however, one good news is that Ansu Fati has been named in the squad. The number 10 had been injured for a long time so it is good to see him making a comeback, however, it is not likely that he will start the game.
The way Luke de Jong has been performing recently, he will probably be the first name on the team sheet. Plus, Ousmane Dembele has also been performing well. Dembele will probably be given a start since Xavi is still trying to convince him to stay with Barca after the current season.
On the other hand, Memphis Depay might get the start over Luuk again while Fati will surely make a cameo near the end of the game or in the second half depending on how the game is going. Xavi prefers to use wingers and that could lead to either Ferran Jutglà or Ez Abde taking over the starters spot.
Predicted XI: Ter Stegen; Alves, Piqué, Lenglet, Alba; Nico, Busquets, Gavi; Dembélé, Memphis, Abde (4-3-3)
