Messi in squad for Lisbon


This Monday lunchtime the squad for Wednesday’s match in Lisbon was announced. Puyol, Touré Yaya and Jorquera have been left out, while Messi and Márquez are back.

Both the Argentine and the Mexican sat out Sunday’s game with Getafe (1-1). Now it’s Puyol and Touré’s turn, as both players had physical problems last week; the club captain couldn’t train on Thursday due to gastric problems and a headache, while the Ivory Coast international had to complete the 48 hour rest period which stopped him playing for his national team.

Fresh for Saturday

Josep Guardiola is thus resting two players who were in the starting XI on Sunday and who will be fresher than their team-mates for Saturday’s clash with Seville. Both Barça’s matches this week are away from home.
