Josep Guardiola has announced a squad of 19 players to make the trip to Madrid for the match against Rayo this Sunday. It includes the 16 fit members of the first team squad (Fontàs, Villa, Abidal, Piqué and Xavi are all out injured) plus Montoya, Bartra and Tello from Barça B. The manager will have to leave one player out of the final squad before the match.

Last training session

The players had a final training session on Saturday morning at the Club’s ‘Joan Gamper’ sports complex, after which Guardiola named his squad.

They will fly to Madrid on Sunday morning where they are due to arrive at noon. The match kicks off in the Vallecas Stadium at 9.30 pm. The Barça party will fly back to Barcelona immediately after the match.
