Barca rest Cesc, recall Busquets

Barcelona have named Sergio Busquets in their squad to face Real Sociedad and have handed Cesc Fabregas a breather.

Continuing his early-season policy of rotation, Coach Tata Martino has elected Fabregas to sit out Week 6’s midweek clash at home to Real Sociedad.

For the Tuesday evening fixture, 19 Barca players have been listed, including Busquets, who skipped the Week 5 trip to Rayo Vallecano.
