Barcelona announce squad for the match against Real Madrid

Barca vs Real Madrid

Barcelona head coach Xavi Hernández has called up 21 players for FC Barcelona’s upcoming Copa Del Rey match against Real Madrid. The Catalan giants will lock horns with the Royal Whites of Madrid in what would be a thrilling encounter enticing with the promise of a fierce, entertaining night at Santiago Bernabéu.

La Blaugrana will be without the services of Pedri, Dembele, and Lewandowski coming into this clash. Danish defender Andreas Christensen’s participation in this highly anticipated clash is also doubtful as he suffered a minor knock in yesterday’s training session.

Given these prominent absentees in the squad, Xavi has a difficult task to figure out a winning tactic against one of the very best teams in clinching a clutch result in a cup competition, Real Madrid. The task is indisputably difficult, but not impossible for the ones who believe, focus, and work hard based on a functioning, victorious plan. Visca Barça!
