Andreas Christensen, Franck Kessie, and Raphinha as new Barcelona arrivals to take the sector in pre-season, with Ousmane Dembele also returning to the fold with his new contract settlement.
All should be available for the match against Juventus, manager Xavi was looking to work Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Memphis Depay into the attacking force that is suddenly overflowing with talent.
Ferran Torres is in play, yet to make his preseason debut due to a foot injury, but he reportedly could have played against Real Madrid if Xavi hadn’t decided to play it safe in the preseason.
American international Sergio Dest should also see time on the field, with Barcelona lacking options at right back. It was natural centre-back Ronald Araujo who played the first hour against Real Madrid there before Dest came in off the bench.
Juventus team is still building their key players up to full fitness and could see an influx of star talent set to make their first vital showings of the preseason.

Ousmane Dembele and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are pushing for attacking berths, but Robert Lewandowski, Ansu Fati, and Raphinha lined up as a front three against the Blancos.
Frenkie de Jong, who continues to be highly playing with Manchester United, started that game as a center-half after being dropped back from a more natural midfield spot.
Paul Pogba has been nursing a knock after rejoining Juve from Manchester United, but he could see minutes alongside fellow summer signing Gleison Bremer.
Leonardo Bonucci and Dusan Vlahovic were unused substitutes against Mexican opposition at the weekend and maybe drafted straight back into a starting XI.
Denis Zakaria is an option to fill a midfield role, while Juan Cuadrado and Alex Sandro will continue to operate as full-backs.
