Despite this, the Blaugrana has a 12-game unbeaten run since early November. This included eight wins. One of those wins was against Atletico at the Wanda Metropolitano with Lionel Messi scoring the winner. Aside from De Jong, the team won’t include the services of Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Arthur Melo and Ousmane Dembele.

Lionel Messi (15 goals, 9 assists), Luis Suarez (14 G, 9 A), Antoine Griezmann (8 G, 4 A), Arturo Vidal (6 G, 1 A).
