Barcelona leave out Javier Mascherano, Dani Alves and Claudio Bravo for tonight’s Copa del Rey semi-final first leg against Valencia.
The South American trio have been given the night off by Luis Enrique and are replaced by Jeremy Mathieu, Aleix Vidal and Marc-Andre ter Stegen, with Arda Turan also coming in for Ivan Rakitic.
Valencia, meanwhile, hand a debut to Atletico Madrid loanee Guilherme Siqueira as Denis Cheryshev is named a substitute, despite the other new boy being the ineligible player who triggered Real Madrid’ expulsion from the Copa in December.

Subs: Masip, Correia, Bartra, Vermaelen, Rakitic, Sergi, Munie
