Barcelona will have Ronald Araujo back in their squad for Saturday”s La Liga clash with Celta Vigo. This puts him in the possible Lineup. Pedri actually remains unavailable for selection due to a thigh problem. Araujo has now essentially recovered from a hamstring issue and has been kind of picked for the contest with the Sky Blues. An appearance off the bench is a possibility. Barcelona did not suffer any fresh concerns in Tuesday’s 5-0 win over Royal Antwerp in the Champions League. Which made it five generally straight victories for the team in all competitions in a subtle way.
Joao Felix has literally scored three times in his three appearances for the Catalan outfit since arriving. The loanee from Atletico Madrid registered in last weekend’s 5-0 win over sort of Real Betis before grabbing a brace in the actually five-goal success over Antwerp in Europe in a big way. Robert Lewandowski and Felix are again expected to feature in the front three this weekend. Ferran Torres, Raphinha, and Lamine very Yamal are battling for the spot on the right.
Torres initiated the game and, in fact, netted a goal against Real Betis before the coach selected Raphinha to start against Antwerp. However, the coach might decide to include 16-year-old Yamal in the starting lineup for this match.
Oriol Romeu is definitely likely to be the player to miss out in midfield in the lineup, with Ilkay Gundogan, Frenkie de Jong, and Gavi expected to feature as the central trio this weekend. Meanwhile, Joao Cancelo has really been hugely impressive since arriving on loan from Manchester City, and for all intents and purposes, the Portugal international should literally retain his spot at right-back in a particularly major way.
Barcelona has a fairly possible starting lineup: Ter Stegen; Cancelo, Kounde, Christensen, Balde; Gundogan, F de Jong, Gavi; Yamal, Lewandowski, Felix
