Jordi Alba named in 'Clásico' squad
Barcelona's squad list to face Real Madrid is now official and there are two pieces of news. The first is that Jordi Alba, who had been working to be on time despite his recent physical problems, is in. The second is that Mingueza, who was called up for the Ferencvaros match, drops out of the squad.
The full squad list is the following: Dest, Piqué, Araujo, Sergio Busquets, Aleñá, Griezmann, Pjanic, Braithwaite, Messi, Dembélé, Riqui Puig, Neto, Coutinho, Lenglet, Pedri, Trincao, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto, De Jong, Ansu Fati, Junior Firpo, Iñaki Peña and Arnau Tenas.
The club, not long after announcing this list, also made public that Jordi Alba received the medical green light. It was the confirmation that the full-back is not going to be injured to face Real Madrid, but that he has managed to leave his injury behind and perhaps he will start. Ter Stegen is still out.
