Sergio, Iniesta and Digne all back

The two captains and the full back are back for the 9.00pm CET start, but Rafinha is out with a fractured nose and Neymar Jr is suspended

Luis Enrique has announced the list of eighteen players for today’s Copa del Rey semi-final second leg at home to Atlético Madrid (TICKETS).

Neymar Jr misses the game through suspension, while Rafinha is out with a fractured nose sustained at the weekend against Athletic Club.

But as Luis Enrique already explained in his Monday media conference, all of Sergio Busquets, Andrés Iniesta and Lucas Digne are back to full fitness and get the nod for the 9.00pm CET kick-off at Camp Nou.

As is usual practice this season, Ter Stegen is being rested in cup matches, with Jordi Masip and Jasper Cillessen taking the goalkeeping berths, while Jeremy Mathieu is the only other first team member that has been left out.

Note that Barça have three players that are one yellow away from a cup suspension (Leo Messi, Jordi Alba and Samuel Umtiti), any of which would miss the final if they are booked today, and also assuming of course that Barça get the job done and secure their place in the showpiece event.

The full squad is therefore as follows: Cillessen, Masip, Piqué, Rakitic, Sergio, Denis Suárez, Arda, Iniesta, Luis Suárez, Messi, Mascherano, Alcácer, Jordi Alba, Digne, Sergi Roberto, André Gomes, Aleix Vidal and Umtiti.
