Barcelona will look to take a huge step towards lifting the La Liga title this season with a win over arch-rivals Real Madrid at Spotify Camp Nou on today, Sunday, March 19, 2023.
The Catalans are the leaders of the league currently and have a nine-point advantage over their weekend opponents, and a win at Camp Nou could see that gap widen further to 12 points.
Ahead of this crunch tie, manager Xavi Hernandez has revealed the squad list that will be at his disposal for the game against Real Madrid.
And to no surprise, midfielder Pedri is absent once again left out even though it looked like he would be back in the roster for the majority of this week. The midfielder had some discomfort in training on Friday and has been ruled out as a result.
Along with Pedri, another key player in Ousmane Dembele remains unavailable for Barcelona. But Ronald Araujo is back in the squad after missing the last game against Athletic Club due to suspension.
