Guardiola has called up the same 18 players who traveled to Villarreal this past weekend (0-0) for Wednesday’s Copa del Rey semi-final match at the Mestalla. The list includes the 15 available players from the first team (now including Cuenca) and three players from Barça B: Sergi Roberto, Dos Santos, and Tello. The only players missing are Afellay, Villa, Fontàs, Pedro, and Iniesta, out with injuries, and Keita, away with the Mali national team at the African Cup of Nations.
Before announcing his squad, Josep Guardiola led FC Barcelona’s second training session of the day, involving the same players who had trained this morning (the 15 players from the first team as well as Sergi Roberto, Dos Santos, Tello, Bartra, Montoya, Muniesa, and Rodri from the reserves).
