Ronald Koeman has decided to include new signing Luuk de Jong in Barcelona‘s squad list for Tuesday night’s Champions League group-stage opener at home to Bayern Munich.
De Jong could make his debut for Barcelona after joining the club on loan on deadline day, as the Blaugrana are currently without Sergio Aguero, Martin Braithwaite, Ousmane Dembele and Ansu Fati due to injury.
Gerard Pique and Sergino Dest, meanwhile, have been called up for the Bayern match after recovering from injury. Philippe Coutinho is another player that has been included, having been out for the last nine months.
