The squad to face Sevilla has been named. Note that Roberto Soriano is suspended; Soldado, Sansone, and Musacchio are injured.

  • Keepers: Asenjo y Andrés.
  • Defenders: Mario, Rukavina, José Ángel, Bonera, Jaume Costa, Víctor Ruiz y Pau (dorsal 47).
  • Midfielders: Bruno, Rodrigo, Trigueros, Jonathan dos Santos, Cheryshev, Samu Castillejo y Leo Suárez (dorsal 49).
  • Strikers: Bakambu, Adrián y Santos Borré.

Note that there are 19 listed; my suspicion is Escribá is not sure about Victor Ruiz’s status, so has named Pau in case we need another CB.

I guess we’ll go 4-4-2; if we had Sansone and Soriano, I would be expecting a 4-2-3-1 from us. I suppose we still could, if we put both Bruno and Rodrigo in the pivote, Jona, Trig and Chery in the three, Bakambu as the one. What do you think?
