FC Barcelona will face Unionistas de Salamanca in their upcoming match in the Copa del Rey Round of 16. After losing the final of the Spanish Super Cup to Real Madrid last Sunday, the Catalans will have to win this game in order not to miss out on two important titles in the space of one week.

Winning this match should not be too difficult for Xavi, as Barcelona have a vastly superior squad to that of Unionistas, who currently play in the Primera Federacion league.

However, the morale of Xavi’s team is not too high at the moment, and the Barcelona head-coach will also have to go into this game with only three first-team defenders. Thus, Xavi and his team will still have to do a significant amount of work to come out victorious in this game.

Barcelona have announced the 21-man squad for this game, which includes several players from the reserve team, including Astralaga, Casado, Kochen, Cubarsi, Pau Victor, Marc Guiu, and Hector Fort. The full squad for this game is as follows:


  • 1: Inaki Pena Sotorres
  • 2: Ander Astralaga
  • 3: Diego Kochen


  • 1: Jules Kounde
  • 2: Andreas Christensen
  • 3: Alejandro Balde
  • 4: Pau Cubarsi
  • 5: Hector Fort


  • 1: Pedri
  • 2: Frenkie De Jong
  • 3: Ilkay Gundogan
  • 4: Oriol Romeu
  • 5: Fermin Lopez
  • 6: Sergi Roberto
  • 7: Marc Casado


  • 1: Robert Lewandowski
  • 2: Joao Felix
  • 3: Ferran Torres
  • 4: Vitor Roque
  • 5: Marc Guiu
  • 6: Pau Victor


  • 1: Ronald Araujo
  • 2: Lamine Yamal


  • 1: Gavi
  • 2: Marc Andre Ter Stegen
  • 3: Joao Cancelo
  • 4: Raphinha
  • 5: Iñigo Martínez
  • 6: Marcos Alonso
