Barcelona announce travelling squad for Manchester United second leg

Man Utd host FC Barcelona in the second leg of their Europa League play-off tie on Thursday night.

Frenkie de Jong is finally heading to Old Trafford

Barcelona have confirmed their 20-man squad for the second leg of their Europa League play-off tie against Manchester United.

Xavi’s side will travel to Manchester on Wednesday, where they will train at Old Trafford and hold a pre-match press conference ahead of the pivotal European tie.

The two sides are level heading into the second leg after an enthralling 2-2 draw last week, meaning the tie is perfectly poised for another classic encounter.

Marcos Alonso headed his side ahead at the Camp Nou before a quick-fire double from United turned the game on its head. Marcus Rashford drew United level before Jules Kounde turned the ball into his own net. Raphinha salvaged a draw for his side when his cross evaded everyone and ended up sneaking in at the far-post.

Barcelona captain Sergio Busquets is back in the squad as he nears a return from injury, while United target Frenkie de Jong has also been included. The La Liga leaders head into the match without the injured Pedri, while Gavi will miss out through suspension.

Busquets missed the first leg due to an ankle injury, but returned to training last week. He was not used by Xavi in the weekend win over Cadiz, but the 34-year-old looks set to return to the line up against United.

Barcelona travelling squad:

Ter Stegen, Araujo, Busquets, Lewandowski, Fati, Ferran, Christensen, Alonso, Alba, Kessie, Roberto, De Jong, Raphinha, Kounde, Garcia, Pena, Balde, Casado, Torre, Tenas.
