Barça have picked the same 19 players that travelled to Malaga for the Copa del Rey quarter final second leg at home to Real Madrid, namely the 16 available first teamers plus Isaac Cuenca, Jonathan Dos Santos and Sergi Roberto from the B squad. The three players out with long-term injuries (Villa, Afellay and Fontàs) and Keita, who is at the African Nations Cup, are the only absentees.

Training at Camp Nou

Barça trained behind closed doors at the Camp Nou today. The players named in the squad for tomorrow’s fixture then went to stay the night together at Hotel W in Barcelona. On Wednesday morning  they will return to the Camp Nou for another session to fine-tune matters before the clásico, which kicks off at 22.00 (Canal+).
