In this article, we'll be looking at how Barca could line up with only its academy players in the starting XI. Check it out below:

Formation

We'll be experimenting with a 4-4-2 formation in order to accommodate all the players.

Goalkeeper

Inaki Pena has been at Barca for a very long time. The youngster is touted as Marc Andre Ter Stegen's future replacement.

As such, he'll definitely occupy the goalkeeping position in this lineup.

Defense

For the backline, Ronald Araujo and Eric Garcia could form a central defensive partnership. The duo has even played together a few times this season, as such, they'll be fitting in seamlessly.

As for the full-back spots, Alejandro Balde and Oscar Mingueza will undoubtedly start in these positions.

Midfield

As for the midfield setup, Sergi Roberto could be used as a right-wing-back with Riqui Puig taking up the opposite flank.

The duo of Nico Gonzalez and Pablo Gavi could play as central midfielders in the middle of the park.

Attack

As for the front-line, Ansu Fati will surely take one of the spots. If Barca manages to register Alex Collado very soon, he could form a partnership with the club's 'No.10'.
