19-player squad to face Zaragoza; Piqué

The player did not recover in time from the injury he picked up against AC Milan.

Guardiola has named 19 players, 16 from the first team plus Montoya, Muniesa and Tello, to the Barça squad.

Gerard Piqué will not play against his ex-team in Zaragoza. The centre defender continues to have issues with the injury he picked up against AC Milan on Tuesday and will not travel to Aragón.

Guardiola has named the same players to his team as he did against AC Milan with the exception of Piqué. 19 Barça players will travel to La Romareda, the 16 available first-team players plus Montoya, Muniesa and Tello.

Saturday, by train

In today’s training session, the last one before tomorrow’s match, both Éric Abidal and Ibrahim Afellay participated whilst Piqué worked on his recovery.

The team will travel to Zaragoza on Saturday. They will leave the Camp Nou at 9:25 for Sants Estació where they will board a train to Zaragoza. They’re scheduled to arrive at 11:30. Kickoff is set for 20:00. (via FCBarcelona.cat)
