Barcelona vs. Sevilla: Xavi names squad for Sunday's LaLiga game
Dembele still out injured but Balde included despite fever
FC Barcelona have announced their squad for this Sunday's match (21:00 CET) against Sevilla at Camp Nou.
Following the 2-1 win over Real Betis at the Benito Villamarín, Xavi's league leaders want to continue their good run of results in the league and achieve what would be their fifth consecutive victory in the competition against Sevilla this weekend.
Barça trained on Saturday morning in the last session prior to the match against the Andalusian side, with Ousmane Dembélé and Alejandro Balde absent through injury and a fever -- although Balde should be OK to face Sevila.
The training session also included the presence of reserve team goalkeeper Nil Ruiz and youth teamer Ángel Alarcón.
In an attempt to pick up another three points in the league, Barça will have to overcome a Sevilla side who arrive at Camp Nou in arguably their best form of the season. After a difficult start to the campaign, in which they have been flirting with relegation, they have three wins from their last four games in the league.
BARÇA'S SQUAD FOR THE MATCH AGAINST SEVILLA
Ter Stegen, Iñaki Peña, Arnau Tenas, Araujo, Busquets, Gavi, Pedri, Lewandowski, Ansu Fati, Ferran Torres, Christensen, Marcos Alonso, Jordi Alba, Kessié, Sergi Roberto, Frenkie de Jong, Raphinha, Koundé, Eric García, Balde and Ángel Alarcón.
