Messi not named in Barca squad

Lionel Messi has not been named in the Barcelona squad for their Copa del Rey match against Ibiza. Piqué and Busquets will also not make the trip to the Balearic Islands.

Barca have decided to use a few of the young players for the match, and have left out 3 of their star players, including Messi, presumably to rest them for the big match away to Valencia on Saturday.

Players such as Chumi, Fati, Ruiz and Puig have all been included in the squad, with Junior Firpo also named.

De Jong is back in the squad after serving his league suspension against Granada at the weekend.

Barcelona play away to Ibiza on Wednesday looking to make the last 16 of the Copa del Rey for the 15th successive season.
