finally, Xavi Hernández was able to include a first-team striker in the call for today’s match at the Linares de Copa: Ousmane Dembélé tested negative in the latest PCR test and will travel with the rest of the available players. He will be the only striker in the first team, with the rest absent due to injury or suspension: Memphis, Braithwaite, Ferran, Luke, Demir and Fati.
Brazilian Dani Alves also enters the list, although he is still waiting to be entered. In any case, the club confirms that the defender will be able to play against Linares.
However, Defenders Clement Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti drop the call due to graphic malaise.
In total, the expedition that travels to Linares consists of a total of twelve players from the first team and nine from the subsidiary. Among the first-team players, Sergio Busquets is also recovering, after his absence at Mallorca due to suspension.
The full list of footballers called up for the match against Linares (7.30pm) is as follows: Ter Stegen, Neto, Piqué, Eric, Araújo, Mingueza, Sergio Busquets, Alba, Alves, Frenkie, Riqui Puig, Dembélé, Nico, Peña, Jutglà, Ilias, Alvaro, Guillem, Comas, Mármol, Estanis.
