Official: Barcelona squad list to face Atletico Madrid

Barcelona will be aiming to end their three-match winless streak when they lock horns with La Liga’s most in-form team in Atletico Madrid at Spotify Camp Nou on Sunday.

Barça have been held to back-to-back goalless draws in their last two matches by Girona and Getafe, before which they were beaten 4-0 by Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey semi-finals.

So, it is imperative for Xavi Hernandez & co. to produce a strong reaction this weekend. Ahead of the match, the Barcelona manager has released the squad list that will be at his disposal to face Atletico Madrid.

And the big news is that midfield duo Frenkie de Jong and Pedri are back in the squad after one and two months out on the sidelines, respectively.

Ousmane Dembele has been back in training this week as well, but has not been called up by Xavi as of yet, with the club erring on the side of caution with the Frenchman.

Other notable absentees include Sergi Roberto, whose season might be over, and Andreas Christensen, who is expected to be back next week.

Another major news from the squad list is the inclusion of 15-year-old La Masia gem Lamine Yamal. Regarded as one of the most gifted young talents within the club, the forward has been training with the first team for a while now and has received his maiden call-up.

Yamal becomes the youngest player in history to be called up as part of the first-team squad.
