Official: Barcelona squad list for the 2022/23 Europa League
Barcelona’s official squad has been updated ahead of their fixture against Manchester United in the Europa League knockout round. The two sides will meet at the Camp Nou on 16th February, with the Old Trafford game scheduled for 23rd.
Four goalkeepers have been penned for the competition, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Inaki Pena featuring as the senior representatives. Arnau Tenas and Ander Astralaga have been called from the reserve side.
All defenders make it to the list, along with Barcelona Atletic callups Marc Casado and Chadi Riad.
There is an interesting change in midfield, though. While Gavi has been officially registered to the senior team in La Liga with the #6 jersey, he will continue to wear #30 in the Europa League because of his registration in the Champions League.
Pablo Torre and Aleix Garrido are also part of the squad.
In attack, the extra space previously occupied by Memphis Depay has been given to Ilias Akhomach, who had played a few games under Xavi and Sergi Barjuan last season. He has not received any minutes this season, though, given the fierce competition.
