Four Barcelona players apart from Messi who will be crucial for Barca to end 2020 on a high note.

The schedule isn't getting any easier and Ronald Koeman's men must do what it takes to end the year on a high note.

Barcelona return to action against Atletico Madrid straight after the international break with crucial games against Juventus in the Champions League and Valencia scheduled for December.

It won't be easy for Ronald Koeman. Here are 4 Barca players who will be crucial in the remaining weeks. We're leaving Leo Messi aside for obvious reasons.

Ousmane Dembele

The French winger is expected to have more playing time with Ansu Fati out injured.

Unlike fellow attackers, he hasn't been called up for his national team.

Dembele has scored 3 goals in 8 games, earning Ronald Koeman's praise.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen

The goalkeeper has made 10 saves in his 2 first appearances for Barca this season.

His cat-like reflexes will be crucial given our defence remains the main cause for concern.

Just like Dembele, Ter Stegen stays with Barca during this international break to regain physical shape after 3 months on the sidelines.

Frenkie de Jong

The Dutchman returned to his best self in the 5-2 Real Betis win and there are hopes he'll eventually thrive under Ronald Koeman.

Frenkie will be crucial for the midfield considering Sergio Busquets' surprising dip in form.

This season, the 23-year-old averages 1.35 tackles, 1.2 interceptions and 92.6 passing accuracy rate per game.

Antoine Griezmann

It's time for the World Cup winner to shrug off his latest struggles and start from scratch.

The Frenchman has scored 2 goals, finally ending his infamous drought.

With the talks on the potential rift between Griezmann and Messi still hot, Antoine definitely needs to silence the critics after getting his goals back.
