Xavi could revert to the 3-4-3 formation with Marc Andre Ter Stegen starting in the goal.
The trio of Andreas Christensen, Gerard Pique and Eric Garcia should be the defenders.
Raphinha and Marcos Balde could be deployed as wing-backs while Pedri Gonzalez and Gavi play in the attacking-midfield and central-midfield positions.
Robert Lewandowski should lead the team’s attack from the middle while Ansu Fati and Ousmane Dembele play as wingers.
