Barça are travelling for the crunch game away to Atlético Madrid on Saturday night with all 21 available players, as well as Ibrahim Afellay, who has not yet been declared fully fit. Neymar, Dani Alves and Marc Bartra, who were all absent against Getafe midweek, all return to the squad.

So the only players that won’t be going to the Vicente Calderón are the injured Oier, Dos Santos and Cuenca. Four of those players will have to be dropped before kick-off on Saturday night.

The team trained for the last time before leaving for the Calderón on Friday evening at the Ciutat Esportiva. The 21 players named for the trip, and Ibrahim Afellay too, worked out normally.
