Messi added to the squad


Josep Guardiola has named his eighteen players for his squad to face Numancia on Sunday. Messi has been included, but there is no place for any of Pedro, Víctor Sánchez or Sylvinho.

The Argentinian is back in the squad for the first time since winning Olympic gold for Argentina. The last time Messi appeared for FC Barcelona was a month ago, on July 30 against ACF Fiorentina ( 1-3 ).

Three players dropped

Unlike against Wisla Krakow, where Guardiola took all the players he had apart from Messi who had just returned the day before from China and Víctor Sánchez, who had only just received the medical all-clear, this time the manager has decided that some players can stay at home. Víctor Sánchez, Sylvinho and Pedro are the players that have not been included.

In Poland, Guardiola only decided which players he would drop on the day of the game.
