The FC Barcelona Women’s A team are in the Netherlands for Wednesday’s first leg of the Champions League last 16 against Dutch club Twente. Kick off is set for 7.00pm CET and will be shown live in Spain on BarçaTV and streamed live globally on FCBarcelona.com.

The team travelled on Monday afternoon to Hengelo, in the province of Overijssel, where the game will be played. On Tuesday morning, despite the adverse weather conditions, the team strolled through the city’s streets.

Squad of 18

With the exception of Irene del Río, travelling in place of the injured Andrea, the coaching staff brought to Holland the same 18 players who beat Albacete 10–0 on Sunday.

Andreia Norton, Mariona and Pilar Garrote are all out with injury. Twente v Barça has raised enormous expectations locally, and over 13,000 tickets have already been sold for the game, a new record for a women's football match in Holland.
