- Sergiño Dest and Abde stay out of the list, in Braithwaite and Samuel Umtiti are neither
Xavi Hernández‘s first official call-up of the season for the opening match of the 2022-23 League at the Camp Nou, a clash between FC Barcelona and Rayo Vallecano (9:00 p.m). A list in which all available except Sergiño Dest and Abde, nor Braithwaite or Umtiti, who do not count for the coach. As was already known, Jules Koundé will not be there because he is not yet registered or Collado, who yesterday did not train with Barcelona because if nothing breaks at the last minute he will play on loan at Elche.
The Barca coach takes 23 players for tonight’s game at Camp Nou. Ter Stegen, Peña, and Tenas, as goalkeepers; Piqué, Araujo, Chrsitensen, Alba, Sergi Roberto, Eric, and Balde, as defenders; Sergio, Pedri, Pjanic, Kessie, De Jong, and Gavi, as midfielders; and Dembélé, Lewandowski, Ansu Fati, Memphis, Ferran Torres, Aubameyang and Raphinha, as forwards.
It should be noted that, as KG has already reported, Sergiño Dest does not count for the Barça coach and he was told to find a team. Staying out of the first call is another message for the American, who maintains his position of continuing as a culé.
