Every available player in squad


FC Barcelona will travel to Almería with an 18-man squad that includes Rafael Márquez as they look to secure three more valuable points at the Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos on Saturday.

Coach Pep Guardiola has called up all of the first-team players that are fit for the 25th league encounter of the season. Gerard Piqué is unavailable due to suspension while Seydou Keita and Éric Abidal are still sidelined with their respective injuries.

The squad will travel to Almería on the day of the game with their flight due to leave Barcelona at 10.30 and land in the Andalucian city 90 minutes later. The game kicks off at 8pm.

California dreaming

Márquez was present after he returned from playing for Mexico in California against the United States. Despite the long journey he trained normally while Lionel Messi and Thierry Henry enjoyed a light practice after their midweek exertions.

Tactics were the order of the day as the players focussed on the way that they would play against Almería and how their opponents were likely to line up in various situations.
