Oier Olazábal and Edmílson are the two novel inclusions in Frank Rijkaard's FC Barcelona squad for the game against Real Mallorca in the Ono Estadi on Saturday.

Edmílson back in the league

After making his official comeback in midweek in the cup, the Brazilian midfielder will be aiming to impress as Touré Yaya is due to leave for the African Cup of Nations.

Jorquera is out of the squad after undergoing a successful operation earlier in the week to repair ligament and meniscus damage that he suffered playing in a friendly encounter for Catalunya over the festive period. Sylvinho, Santi Ezquerro and Marc Crosas have been rested.
