Predicted Barcelona XI vs Almería

Barcelona welcome Almería to Camp Nou on Saturday for what will be Gerard Piqué’s last home game for the club.

Eric García and Jules Koundé missed Barcelona’s training session on Friday but the former Manchester City centre-back has been included in the squad.

Franck Kessié picked up an injury against Viktoria Plzen, while Sergio Busquets will return to the starting line-up, probably alongside Pedri and one of Gavi and Frenkie de Jong.

Robert Lewandowski is likely to start up front after being rested in the Champions League.

In 14 meetings in the league and cup over the years, Barça have never lost to Almería and have always won when playing at home.

The Blaugrana will be expecting to pick up another three points tonight, and in doing so, give club legend Piqué a winning send-off.

GSFN’s predicted XI:

Ter Stegen – Bellerín, Piqué, Alonso, Balde – Busquets, Pedri, Gavi – Dembélé, Lewandowski, Ferran Torres.

Kickoff gets underway at Camp Nou at 9pm (Spanish time).
