The Champions League returns on Wednesday with qualification to the quarterfinals at stake. For the match against Lyon, which kicks off at 9.00pm CET, Ernesto Valverde has called up 20 players.
They are: Ter Stegen, N. Semedo, Piqué, I. Rakitic, Sergio, Coutinho, Arthur, Suárez, Messi, O. Dembélé, Cillessen, Malcom, Lenglet, Murillo, Jordi Alba, Prince, S. Roberto, Vidal, Umtiti and Aleñá.
Rafinha and Vermaelen are still out injured, while Todibo is left out by technical decision. Aleñá will continue to wear the No.26 during the rest of the Champions League, although in the League and Cup he will revert to the No.21.
This Tuesday the available players from the first team trained for the last time before the game against Lyon. Ousmane Dembélé was with the group and Iñaki Peña of Barça B made up the numbers on the Tito Vilanova pitch. On Wednesday, before the match, Valverde must discard two players.
