Alves, Masche out of Copa

Neither Dani Alves nor Javier Mascherano have been called up by Luis Enrique for Barcelona’s Copa del Rey semi-final first leg with Valencia.

The club’s official website lists the 18-man squad named by Lucho and with Rafinha the only player out through injury, Alves and Masche have been given the night off.

Douglas and Sandro Ramirez also miss out, while Claudio Bravo isn’t involved either as Marc-Andre Ter Stegen will take the gloves as Jordi Masip deputises.

Barcelona squad to play Valencia:

Ter Stegen, Masip, Pique, Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Arda Turan, Iniesta, Suarez, Messi, Neymar, Bartra, Munir, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto, Adriano, Aleix Vidal, Vermaelen, Mathieu
