Leo Messi, José Manuel Pinto, Andrés Iniesta, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba will all miss this Sunday’s away match against Zaragoza. The Argentine had treatment from the physio this Saturday while Pinto is suffering from a painful lumbago and will also not travel to Zaragoza.

The coaches have decided to rest Andrés Iniesta and Jordi Alba while Sergio Busquets has a groin problem. Tito Vilanova has named a squad of 18 players including Oier Olazábal and Sergi Roberto from Barça B.
