Nine B team players in squad for Seville
Pep Guardiola has called up 19 players for the trip to Seville, with 10 of the first team squad joined by 9 players from Barca B, including keepers Miño and Oier. None of the club’s World Cup winners are included in the squad for the game.
For the first official game of the season, Guardiola has called up 19 players, though he will have
to leave one of them in the stands before kickoff, as the Super Cup only allows for seven subs.
Five midweek internationals make the trip
As well as the Spanish internationals, Hleb, Víctor Sánchez and Cáceres
are also left behind, as is the injured Pinto, whilst the five other internationals who played
midweek- Alves, Messi, Ibra, Jeffren and Bojan all make the trip.
New man between the posts
Of the nine Barca B players, five could be in line for a debut with the first team - Miño,
Oriol Romeu, Sergi Gómez, Sergi Roberto and Nolito. With Pinto out and Valdes not travelling,
either Miño or Oier are guaranteed a start in goals.
Double session in Barcelona
The first team squad players who won’t be travelling to Seville will have morning and
evening training sessions on Saturday whilst Víctor Vázquez, Fontàs, Bartra and Riverola will train
with Luis Enrique.
