Bartra left out for Rayo trip

Barcelona have left out Marc Bartra for a second game after the defender was absent from the squad which travelled to Rayo Vallecano on Thursday.

Bartra was not called up for the 2-1 win against Sevilla on Sunday, and Barca have again dropped the player for “technical reasons”, alongside Sandro Ramirez, Douglas and Jordi Masip.

Elsewhere, Rafinha remains unavailable due to injury, while Dani Alves is suspended.

Barcelona squad for Rayo Vallecano in full: Ter Stegen, Bravo; Pique, Mascherano, Vermaelen, Mathieu, Alba, Vidal, Adriano; Rakitic, Busquets, Arda, Iniesta, Sergi; Suarez, Messi, Neymar, Munir
