Aleix Vidal excluded from Catalunya Supercup squad list

Arda given medical all-clear

Just six members of Barça's first team squad have made the list for tomorrow's Catalunya Supercup meeting with Espanyol at the Nou Estadi in Tarragona. Masip, Denis, Paco Alcácer, André Gomes, Mathieu together with Arda Turan, who was given the medical all-clear today, form part of Luis Enrique's 18-man list. The surprise omission is Aleix Vidal, who the club report  experienced pain to his right adductor in this morning's training session. Aleix has not featured since the 1-2 defeat to Alavés in Week 3 and this latest 'injury' is open to speculation. What isn't in doubt is Barça's plan to offload the player in the January transfer window.

Tomorrow's match kicks off at 21:30 hours local time.

Barcelona squad:

Masip, Denis, Arda, Paco Alcácer, André Gomes, Mathieu, J. Suárez, Palencia, Mujica, Nili, Marlon, Moi, Martínez, Sarsanedas, Aleñá, Alfaro, Gumbau and Carbonell.

Espanyol squad:

Roberto, Diego López, Demichelis, Rubén Duarte, Víctor Sánchez, Víctor Álvarez, Gerard, Salva Sevilla, Reyes, Caicedo, Léo Baptistão, Jurado, David López, Javi López, Javi Fuego, P. Diop, Diego Reyes, Marc Roca, Aarón and Óscar Melendo.
