12 first-team players and 4 from Barcelona B
Only 12 first-team players —including 2 goalkeepers— will travel to play the round of 32 first leg of Copa del Rey at Villanovense field. So important players will stay in Barcelona:
Forwards Neymar and Suárez, goalkeeper Bravo, defenders Mascherano, Piqué, Busquets and Iniesta will rest. Indeed, Iniesta has not yet received medical clearance and Luis Enrique has made clear that he will not call him "until he does not tell us he is 100% fit."
To complete the list, Luis Enrique called four Barcelona B players: Samper, Gumbau, Aitor and Kaptoum.
This is the full list:
- Ter Stegen
- Dani Alves
- Jordi Alba
