FC Barcelona continue their stride towards La Liga Santander title as they hope to achieve a momentous title under Xavi Hernandez. The players and coaching staff alike will be aiming to win as many games possible from those that are left to ensure no slip-ups occur in their quest for domestic glory. However, even individual players seem to be at the cusp of independent glory.

Annually, as the season comes to a close, the awards for Team of the Season are handed out. These awards, decided by a voting system that involves fans, players, and some expert panels, go on to dictate what ensemble of players has remained the most impressive throughout the league season and have been the most impactful.

A great achievement to be considered among the best from your own division, it would be particularly special to a newly emerging FC Barcelona side, under the tutelage of a relatively new manager in his first full season, to find some of their players make the final team of the season nominee list.

The following are the 9 FC Barcelona players that have been nominated for Team of the Season for 2022/2023:

Goalkeeper: Marc Andre Ter Stegen

Defenders: Jules Kounde, Alejandro Balde

Midfielders: Frenkie De Jong, Pedri, Gavi

Forwards: Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Ousmane Dembele

Understandably, these nominations always have contentions and disagreements from fans across the globe who believe their respective favorite players also deserved to be nominated. However, there remain only a limited number of players that can be nominated for this Team of the Season.

The final Team will include 15 players out of the initial 47 nominees following the voting period. One goalkeeper will be selected, four defenders, three midfielders, and 3 forwards. The final list will also include 4 other players that also stood out to the voters that season.

Out of all of FC Barcelona’s nominated players, the ones who currently hold a very strong chance of making the final selection include Zamora challenging Marc Andre Ter Stegen, current league top scorer Robert Lewandowski and defenders Jules Kounde and Alejandro Balde.
