Two Barcelona summer signings handed debut call-ups for Cadiz clash

The Catalans’ ranks are set to be further reinforced this weekend, by a pair of new defenders

Spanish giants Barcelona have, on Friday, announced the club’s latest travelling squad, featuring a pair of altogether noteworthy inclusions.

Xavi Hernandez’s troops are set to mark their return to action in a little less than 24 hours’ time.

Fresh off a quartet of successive victories across all competitions, the Blaugrana will make the trip to the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla, for a La Liga showdown with Cadiz.

With table-topping Real Madrid not in line to take to the pitch until Sunday, Barca will therefore head into proceedings in the knowledge that another three-point haul would be enough to guide them, at least temporarily, clear of their Clasico rivals to the summit of the Spanish top-flight.

And, as alluded to above, the hopes of Xavi’s side of managing precisely that, on Friday, have been afforded a boost.

This comes in the form of a pair of debut matchday call-ups for two of the club’s summer additions.

This time round, though, it is a pair of late-window arrivals who have entered the fray.

As confirmed in a post across the club’s social media platforms, Hector Bellerin and Marcos Alonso have been included in the travelling party bound for Cadiz.

Both full-backs, in turn, could be in line for debut appearances for their new club on Saturday evening.
