My pick of Barca's starting eleven for tonight's game against Benfica.

Following the announcement of the squad for the match against Benfica, there was a flurry of discussion on social media. They were, however, attempting to express their viewpoint. I'm anticipating a few adjustments to the game. While watching the first game of Xavi's reign, you'll notice that there was a lot of evidence that Barcelona's young guns would be getting the majority of the playing time. I've attempted to put together my own starting eleven in this section.

Ter Stegen is the automatic selection in his position. There is no doubt as to why I chose him for the position he holds today.
The same can be said for Jordi Alba as well, though the reason I chose Jordi Alba is that there is no better replacement available at the present time.

Do you remember the Puyol and Pique combination? Since Garcia became a member of the club, I've been wishing to see the duo together again. My choice of Araujo and Garcia was based on my desire for them to grow together.

The reason Dest is being used instead of Mingueza is that Dest has the potential to be our next Dani Alvez.

There is no question about picking De Jong, Sergio Busquets, and Nico Gonzalez. Though I prefer Gavi in the De jong position and De Jong in the Sergio Busquets position.

An injured Dembele and fully fit Dembele is two different humans. A fully fit Dembele can be a valuable member of any team anywhere in the world. Since he has returned from injury, there is no question about why he should be selected.

Coutinho, You can argue about why I chose Coutinho, but you have to admit that he is the best-left winger we have in the squad that has been announced for the match against Benfica right now.

Depay has been the most impressive player for FC Barcelona so far this season.

To be more specific, this was my starting eleven for the match against Benfica. Let's see how Xavi decides to line up his starting lineup.

Nice try @sadfish, it's not easy to predict a line-up when you have not gotten into the head of the coach. Even the Barca players are still learning the way their new coach thinks.

So let's watch him carefully then we can predict more accurately. In these his first matches,I can see that he doesn't feel under pressure to field big names and I'm not surprised about that too. He will stick with the old Barca tiki-taka philosophy and will always tend to choose players who will perfectly interpret it, no matter how young. I reckon that he loves Dembele but I notice that he is mature enough not to rush Dembele into things.

It was a goalless draw and Barca is on the brink of elimination. I know Xavi is not disturbed by that(it's not his fault) he will keep working hard tirelessly,tactically and fearlessly.

Actually, I was just trying to give my own lineup for the game. It is my dream to watch them play together. And it will be more compatible when Pedri, Fati arrives. The reason Barca is on the brink of elimination is because of the desire of the previous coach. Let's hope they win the game against Bayern. I don't want to see Barca in Europa League. It's better to get eliminated rather than playing Europa. Xavi is optimistic, and i hope he will bring the best result in the next match.
