Piqué and Xavi in the squad

Anna Segura

Xavi Hernández and Gerard Piqué have been included in a 20-man squad for FC Barcelona’s trip to Mallorca at the weekend.

After training on Friday morning the Blaugrana coach announced the group that he would take to the Balearic Islands for the game against Gregorio Manzano’s high-flying side.

Comeback kings

After being given the green light by club medics, Xavi is back in the squad after recovering from an injury that he suffered in training recently. Piqué is also back in contention after he was deemed fit after being left out for the visit of Osasuna in midweek as a precaution as he continued his comeback from a knee injury.

One absentee

Sergio Busquets will not participate in the game against Real Mallorca. The midfielder is suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the season in the last outing.

21 players

Everyone except Éric Abidal took to the pitch at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper at 11am. Jonathan Dos Santos was also called up from the youth ranks and will travel to the Ono Estadi.

Abidal worked away from the rest of the squad with a personal coach as he continues his recovery programme.

Travel plans

Barça will travel to Mallorca on Saturday morning with the flight departing at 10.30am on the island 50 minutes later. The players will then travel to their hotel where they will stay until the game.
