Memphis Depay and Matthijs de Ligt are still out of action for their clubs this weekend as Louis van Gaal gets ready to name his World Cup squad.

Next Friday, Van Gaal will pick his 26-man Netherlands squad for the World Cup in Qatar. Matthijs de Ligt and Memphis Depay are both expected to be part of it, but both are still recovering from injury.

Memphis has a thigh problem and hasn’t featured for Barcelona since September. Xavi Hernandez had hoped to have the forward back, but he is still missing from the squad against Almeria this weekend. Barcelona now only have one game left before the World Cup.

De Ligt has been out for two weeks with a knee issue and he will not play for Bayern Munich this weekend against Hertha Berlin.
