Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino has named a 21-man squad for Sunday’s game against Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabéu, kick-off 9 pm. Gerard Piqué is back in the squad after missing the last match against Osasuna. However, defensive partner and team captain Carles Puyol is still recovering from his knee problem and will miss the clash – though he should resume full training next week. Isaac Cuenca, Jonathan dos Santos(injured) and goalkeeper Oier Olazábal have also been cut from the final list.
The players had their final training session at the Ciutat Esportiva on Saturday morning. They will travel to Madrid on Sunday morning and arrive just before midday.
