The Camp Nou is set for Gerard Pique’s last home game as Barcelona take on Almeria in La Liga. This is the second last game before the World Cup kicks off, and one that could (temporarily) take the Catalans to the top of the table.
Pique starts the game in central defence and is once again paired alongside Marcos Alonso. The Spanish duo is part of the back four, flanked by Alejandro Balde as the right-back and Jordi Alba on the left.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen takes back his gloves from Inaki Pena in goal.
In midfield, we have Sergio Busquets starting as the anchor, while Pedri takes up the advanced interior spot on the left.
Frenkie de Jong takes the box-to-box responsibility to round off the trident, while Gavi starts from the bench.
October Player of the Month, Robert Lewandowski, leads the line as the centre-forward. Ousmane Dembele returns to the side and could feature on the right wing, while Ferran Torres features on the left flank after his recent impressive run of form.
Barcelona Confirmed Lineup: ter Stegen, Balde, Pique, Alonso, Alba, de Jong, Busquets, Pedri, Dembele, Lewandowski, Torres
