Amid the chaos of the European Super League, Barcelona is preparing for their game against Getafe which will be held at Camp Nou. The Catalan Giants have been criticised widely for their association with the league. The FIFA, UEFA and others had said that the players participating in the league will be barred from both the bodies. In fact, Barcelona had tweeted by calling itself the founding member of the European Super League. Ahead of the game, Barcelona has announced a 23-member squad for the game and Lionel Messi has been included in the team. After Real Madrid's 3-1 win over Cadiz last evening, they have topped the La Liga 2021 points table.
