Official: Barcelona squad list to face AD Ceuta
Barcelona will be in high spirits following their impressive win in the Spanish Super Cup final against Real Madrid on the weekend.
All eyes will be on the Copa del Rey, where they take on AD Ceuta in the Round of 16 tomorrow night. As promised by Xavi, the squad list had been released immediately after the last training session.
Memphis Depay has been dropped from the travelling team after missing the last training session. The forward is on his way to Atletico Madrid for a fee close to €3 million.
Young striker Angel Alarcon has replaced him in the squad and could continue to be called up until Barcelona can sort out a replacement.
Hector Bellerin and Pablo Torre were discarded from the matchday squad against Real Madrid, but will likely start tomorrow against the third-division outfit in the cup tie.
Exit-linked Franck Kessie could also get another chance to impress Xavi in midfield.
