Barcelona has released the list of the 26 culés players who travel to Lisbon for the final phase of the Champions Leaguand. This Friday, the team led by Quique Setién faces the quarterfinals at 9:00 p.m. at the Estadio da Luz against the great favorite, the Bayern Munich.
The main novelty of the call is the inclusion of Ousmané Dembélé, who returns after suffering a complete tear in the proximal tendon of the right biceps femoris last February. In this way, Barça recovers a player who has not yet been able to justify the financial effort that the club made for him during the summer of 2017. Those who will not be there will be Arthur, who has already signed with Juventus, and Umtiti due to injury.
17 players from the first team travel to Lisbon, a city that will host this final phase of the Champions League in full, in addition to nine homegrown players that complete the Barça squad: Iñaki Peña, Araujo, Mingueza, Riqui Puig, Monchu, Reis, Jandro, Ansu Fati and Konrad.
