Tito Vilanova has named 20 players in the party that travels to Anoeta on Saturday (18.00, GolT, Canal + Liga). Everyone of the available first team members are included apart from Jonathan Dos Santos. Also missing is David Villa, who is still having trouble with the femoral biceps in his right thigh, as well as Cuenca, Muniesa and Abidal.

Vilanova will have to drop two more names before kickoff against Real Sociedad.

Training with Abidal and Cuenca

The last training session before departing for the Basque Country featured all of the squad, including Abidal and Cuenca, while Muniesa, Villa and Song stayed in the gym, though the latter has been named in the squad.

The squad

Valdés, Pinto, Alves, Adriano, Montoya, Piqué, Puyol, Alba, Mascherano, Bartra, Song, Xavi, Cesc, Busquets, Thiago, Iniesta, Tello, Pedro, Alexis and Messi
