🗞️ Team News: UD Almería

The UD Almería manager Pepe Mel has no fitness concerns at all before this clash thanks to a completely injury-free squad to choose from. Léo Baptistão is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

In all likelihood, UD Almería may well kick off with a 4-2-3-1 formation for this game featuring Luis Maximiano, Marc Pubill, Edgar Gonzalez, Cesar Montes, Alex Centelles, Marcos Pena, Lucas Robertone, Leo Baptistao, Jonathan Viera, Adrian Embarba and Anthony Lozano.

📋 Team News: Barcelona

Barcelona boss Xavi Hernández has a number of players out of action. Ronald Araujo (Knee problems), Frenkie de Jong (Ankle injury), Alejandro Balde (Tendon rupture) and Gavi (Cruciate ligament tear) can’t be considered. İlkay Gündoğan is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

From our viewpoint, Barça will likely begin the game with a 4-3-3 lineup with a starting lineup of M. ter Stegen, Jules Kounde, Pau Cubarsi, Inigo Martinez, Joao Cancelo, Fermin Lopez, Andreas Christensen, Pedri, Lamine Yamal, Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha.

✨ Prediction

Our assessment is that UD Almería will manage to find the net against this Barcelona team, but one goal might not prevent defeat.

Our tip is for a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 winning margin for Barcelona at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be a good one.
