Jordi Roura has named his 19-man squad for the match against Real Madrid tomorrow, with Xavi Hernandez the most notable casualty.
The veteran midfielder will be out for between 10 and 15 days with a hamstring pull, and will therefore miss the trip to the capital.
Chile international Alexis Sanchez comes back into the squad however, after missing the cut for the Copa del Rey match.
Full squad: Valdes, Pinto, Alves, Pique, Bartra, Puyol, Mascherano, Alba, Adriano, Song, Busquets, Iniesta, Thiago, Fabregas, Messi, Tello, Alexis, Villa.
