Barça are leaving for Granada on Friday evening ahead of their 4.00pm CET kick-off in Saturday’s league fixture. After training, Luis Enrique announced his squad of eighteen, which forcibly excludes Gerard Piqué, who is suspended. Douglas has been declared fully fit, but misses out nonetheless, and there no places for Sergi Roberto or Masip either.
The full squad that will fly to Andalusia this evening is therefore as follows: Ter Stegen, Bravo, Montoya, Rakitic, Sergio, Xavi, Pedro, Iniesta, Suárez, Messi, Neymar, Rafinha, Mascherano, Bartra, Jordi Alba, Adriano, Alves and Mathieu.
The team trained on the Tito Vilanova pitch at the Ciutat Esportiva. Douglas was able to complete the session normally and the players were also joined by the reserve team’s Munir.
