Luis Enrique names a strong squad to face Atletico as Iniesta and Busquets return

Barcelona manager Luis Enrique has revealed his squad for Tuesday night’s (8:00 pm GMT) game against Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey semi-final at Camp Nou.

As revealed, Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta have received the OK from the club’s medical team and have returned to the squad. Barça boss Luis Enrique, therefore, recovers two key parts of his midfield. However, while Busquets is set to start, Iniesta may well begin the game on the bench.

Left-back Lucas Digne has also been given the green light to return from a knee problem.

Catalan defender Gerard Pique, who was taken off against Athletic Club with a thigh problem, is also fit to join the 18-man squad.

Meanwhile, Luis Enrique has left Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Jeremy Mathieu out.

Also missing the match will be Rafinha with a broken nose and Neymar, who is suspended following the accumulation of three bookings.

The squad is: Cillessen, Masip, Pique, Rakitic, Busquets, Denis Suárez, Arda, Iniesta, Luis Suarez, Messi, Mascherano, Alcacer, Jordi Alba, Digne, Sergi Roberto, Andre Gomes, Aleix Vidal and Umtiti.
