Barcelona vs Spurs lineups, team news
In their last friendly, Xavi put out a much more rotated side than against Real Madrid in Dallas. It’s expected he could return to a stronger side to face Tottenham as he hopes to get his first XI to match fitness ahead of the La Liga season.
Barcelona predicted lineup (4-3-3): Pena (GK) — Ronald Araujo, Joules Kounde, Eric Garcia, Alex Balde — Frenkie De Jong, Pedri, Oriel Romeu — Raphinha, Ansu Fati, Robert Lewandowski.
For Spurs, Ange Postecoglou will be hoping to continue his ultra-attacking play that entertained the Tottenham faithful at the weekend in their 5-1 victory over Shakhtar. New signings Guglielmo Vicario and Destiny Udogie both played 90 minutes in that win and could see more minutes to get their match fitness up.
