Barça have a number of injury concerns for today’s Liga fixture with Granada at the Camp Nou, so Luis Enrique has had plenty to think about before announcing his squad of eighteen for the match.
All of Gerard Piqué, Andrés Iniesta, Jordi Alba and Jeremy Mathieu miss the game as expected, and Arda Turan has also failed to recover from a badly swollen foot in time and Aleix Vidal also sits the game out with adductor problems.
But the team does welcome back Rafinha and Jasper Cillessen, although three players from Barça B have still be called upon to complete the list, namely Nili, Marlon and Aleñá (the latter also made last weekend’s trip to Valencia. The only first team player dropped for today’s 8.45pm CET is goalkeeper Jordi Masip.
The full squad us thus as follows: Ter Stegen, Cillessen, Rakitic, Sergio, Denis Suárez, Suárez, Messi, Neymar Jr, Rafinha, Mascherano, Paco Alcácer, Digne, Sergi Roberto, André Gomes, Umtiti, Aleñá, Nili and Marlon.
