Messi back but Henry and Bojan out


Rijkaard has picked all the first team players he can for the trip to Huelva. Messi is back from injury, but Henry and Bojan’s names have been added to that of Iniesta as absentees, while Barça B player Vázquez has won a place.

The Catalan has sprained an isquiotibial muscle in his right leg, while the Frenchman has suffered painful bruising in his right Achilles heel.

Messi, Ezquerro and Vázquez come in

The Argentinian is back after a five week absence caused by an injury against Celtic, while the player from La Rioja hasn’t been called upon since the Betis game. Vázquez, meanwhile, has yet to make his league debut, something which has already happened to Víctor Sánchez and Pedrito recently.

Normal training

The players that missed training on Thursday resumed normal activity on Friday, namely Valdés, Abidal, Xavi, Zambrotta and Márquez, who have all been cleared to play against Huelva.
