Amidst Injury Crisis, Barcelona Registers youngster Marc Guiu for UCL clash following his winner performance over the weekend.
In light of the youngster’s standout performance against Athletic Club, FC Barcelona is swiftly moving to secure the registration of Marc Guiu for their UEFA Champions League squad, ensuring he’s eligible to face Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday night.
The 17-year-old La Masia prodigy holds a revered status within the club and has garnered high praise from Xavi Hernandez and Deco. His professional debut for Barcelona will be etched in the memories of fans and pundits alike as he marked his arrival with a goal that secured a crucial victory.
With the injury situation in the club and Robert Lewandowski unavailable, Barcelona has found themselves without a conventional center-forward which prompted the call-up of Guiu against Athletic Club. The youngster seized his opportunity with both hands, etching his name in the record books as the youngest debutant to score for the Catalan giants.
Initially, Marc Guiu’s name was not part of Barcelona’s submitted final squad for the UEFA Champions League in September. However, the regulations governing List B offer Clubs the privilege to register an unlimited number of players on List B during the season, with the stipulation that this list must be submitted before 00:00 CET on the day preceding a match.
Barcelona has just until 23:59 CET on Tuesday to add Marc Guiu’s name to the UEFA Champions League List B. The club is actively working to secure his inclusion for the clash with Shakhtar Donetsk. This move holds the promise of Guiu making his European debut, potentially elevating Barcelona’s campaign in the UEFA Champions League to new heights.
