Piqué out against Malaga

Guardiola will be without Gerard Piqué this evening. The player went down with a fever on Saturday and is feeling even worse today, and is too unwell to face Malaga.

The centre back missed Saturday training through illness, and is the fever has got even worse today and so he will not be in the squad that faces Malaga at 19.00 in the Camp Nou.

Botía with squad

With Gerard Piqué sick, and Milito, Puyol and Abidal all injured, the Barça manager opted to bring in reserve team defender Alberto Botía. On Sunday morning he joined the first team players for a short pre-match workout on the Camp Nou turf.

Full squad

Josep Guardiola has named all of his players, along with Botía. The only players he will have to drop will be one of the three goalkeepers (Albert Jorquera was declared fit on Saturday) and two outfield players.
