Some key notes to take from the squad list:
– Riqui Puig from Barça B is included, despite earlier reports claiming that Koeman doesn’t count on him.
– Ter Stegen, Martin Braithwaite, and Samuel Umtiti don’t make it into the list due to injury.
– Rafinha makes the squad list amid transfer speculations.
– Argentine youngster Santiago Ramos Mingo is included for the first time. The 18-year-old centre-back who arrived from Boca Juniors has not even made his debut with Barça B yet.
The game will be played on 9 pm CET.
