Ahead of their La Liga 2020-21 game against Sevilla Barcelona has announced the 23-members squad for the match which is to be held at the Camp Nou. The highlight of the squad was the inclusion of Sergino Dest who is the new entrant from Ajax. A while ago, the team confirmed the news on social media about Dest being available for the game against Sevilla which means that he could be included in the playing XI too. Lionel Messi is obviously included in the squad. However, the team is marred with the suspension of Clement Lenglet and only three defenders are available for the squad.
