The games in La Liga continue to come hard and fast as Barcelona travel to Castellon to take on Villarreal as part of their La Liga gameweek 32 fixture. The game against the Yellow Submarine always offers a ton of goals and entertainment. Ronald Koeman has called up 22 players in the hope of continuing the good form.
Ousmane Dembele was dropped from the squad list that hosted Getafe at the Camp Nou owing to an injury, but receives the medical green light for this game. His starting spot, though, is highly contentious given the nature of his injury and his history. Neto has been called up over Arnau Tenas after being declared fit.
Martin Braithwaite, however, has not been included, which was predictable after Ronald Koeman’s press conference. Konrad de la Fuente has been dropped as well, which means Barça travel with four forwards.

Full list: ter Stegen, Neto, Pena; Dest, Roberto, Mingueza, Pique, Araujo, Lenglet, Umtiti, Alba, Firpo; Busquets, Matheus, Ilaix, de Jong, Pedri, Puig, Pjanic; Dembele, Messi, Trincão, Griezmann
Absentees: Ansu Fati (knee), Phillipe Coutinho (knee), Martin Braithwaite (ankle)
If Ronald Koeman’s men are able to win all remaining games left in the league, the league title is guaranteed. But in their way stands Valencia, Atletico Madrid, Celta Vigo, and tomorrow, a Europe-hungry Villarreal.
