Barcelona squad vs Celta Vigo announced: Delighted fans react to one inclusion in particular

Posted by

As they continue to put their Champions League disappointment behind them, Barcelona will be fully focused on facing Celta Vigo on Tuesday night.

The Catalan giants received significant criticism after crashing out of Europe at the hands of Roma last week, but a win over Celta will move them closer to another La Liga title.

Ernesto Valverde’s men boast an 11-point lead over Atletico Madrid with just six games remaining, and so they will be confident in their ability to secure more silverware.

Coupled with the Copa del Rey final against Sevilla on Saturday, Valverde has received plenty of praise from supporters, as seen in the tweets below, for finally rotating and resting key players while the inclusion of defender Yerry Mina in particular seems to have left them pleased.

The Colombian ace has struggled to make recent matchday squads as he hasn’t been able to settle at the Nou Camp since his January arrival. With Barca set to make changes to their starting line-up, he’ll be hopeful of getting some playing time and having an impact before the season is over.

There is still plenty on the line for Barcelona though, as while they won’t want to slip up and give Atleti any encouragement, they’re also looking to extend their record 39-game unbeaten run in La Liga.

A win would move them closer to securing another league title, but perhaps Saturday’s showdown with Sevilla has taken on more importance from Valverde’s perspective, with Gerard Pique, Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta among those left out.

A strong line-up is still expected, but he’ll undoubtedly have one eye on the weekend to ensure he has a fully-fit squad at his disposal.
