Pep Guardiola has 18 players available for the game against Athletic Club de Bilbao in San Mamés as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Éric Abidal and Gaby Milito are all unavailable through injured and Touré has flu.

Barça trained on Friday at the Coitat Esportiva Joan Gamper in their last session before heading to Bilbao on Saturday morning ahead of the 22:00 kick off on the same day. Jonathan Dos Santos has been called up by Guardiola to step up from the B team to the first team squad.
