Barcelona announce squad for Leonesa second leg





Barcelona will welcome Cultural Leonesa for the second leg of their Copa del Rey Round of 32 matchup, with Barça carrying a 1-0 lead from the first game.

Ernesto Valverde has called up the following 19 players for the game, with one of them cut from the final matchday squad:

Goalkeepers: 1. Marc-Andre ter Stegen, 13. Jasper Cillessen

Defenders: 2. Nélson Semedo, 15. Clément Lenglet, 24. Thomas Vermaelen, 27. Juan Miranda, 36. Chumi

Midfielders: 4. Ivan Rakitic, 6. Denis Suarez, 7. Philippe Coutinho, 21. Carles Alena, 22. Arturo Vidal, 28. Riqui Puig, 34. Alex Collado, 35. Oriol Busquets, 38. Guillem Jaime

Forwards: 11. Ousmane Dembele, 14. Malcom, 19. Munir

Since this is a Cup game against a Third Division side, Valverde allows himself to rest his main players, so Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets and Lionel Messi get the day off. Missing through injury are Arthur, Luis Suarez, Rafinha, Sergi Samper, Sergi Roberto and Samuel Umtiti.
