BAR vs YRB: Barcelona's Strongest Lineup that Could Defeat York Red Bulls in Pre-Season

The Blaugrana are expected to reintroduce Ronald Araujo & Pedri back into the starting lineup for their pre-season friendly against Major League Soccer side, York Red Bulls in the early hours of Sunday at the Red Bulls Arena.

Both first-team stars played no part in Barcelona's match against Juventus, which they drew 2-2, but the duo are set to start, with Club manager, Xavi Hernandez likely to make some changes to his midfield for the clash in New Jersey.

Raphinha, Gavi & Ansu Fati are all expected to join Araujo & Pedri in the lineup, with Sergino Dest potentially taking over the right back spot in defence.

Spain international, Sergio Roberto on the other hand featured against the Italian giants & played 32 minutes, but was later subbed off after he struggled to carry on due to injury, he's a big doubt for this match & could be unavailable.
