Motta included in squad for Alavés

Thiago Motta has been named in the FC Barcelona squad in place of Marc Crosas for the Copa del Rey game against Alavés in Mendizorroza on Wednesday. The rest of the squad is the same as the one that travelled to Getafe.

The Brazilian-Italian missed the first league encounter after the Christmas break after reporting back with flu. Coach Frank Rijkaard has called Motta up at the first opportunity, however, as he has been named for the Last 16, first leg encounter against Alavés.

While Motta takes his place for the first time in the New Year, the rest of the players were all included for the 1-1 draw against Getafe with B-team defender Jésus Olmo retaining his place.
