The squad of eighteen has been announced for tonight’s Champions League fixture with APOEL. Dani Alves is included after being declared fully recovered from his knee injury, and fellow Brazilian Douglas has been named in the side for the first time since arriving at FC Barcelona.

Luis Enrique and his staff have opted to leave out Montoya, Busquets, Pedro, Mascherano and Jordi Alba, while the injured Vermaelen will also sit the game out. But Samper, Sandro and Munir, all of Barça B, get the nod.

The complete squad of 18 versus APOEL:

Ter Stegen, C. Bravo, Piqué, Rakitic, Xavi, A. Iniesta, Messi, Neymar, Rafinha, Bartra, Douglas, Sergi Roberto, Adriano, Dani Alves, Mathieu, Samper, Sandro & Munir.
