Mascherano in Barça squad, Arda and Mathieu miss out
The Argentina defender has been given the green light to play against Sporting while Lucas Digne comes in for the injured Frenchman. Turan, in the stands.
Luis Enrique announced his squad for the LaLiga match against Sporting in Camp Nou on Wednesday night and the main point of interest was the return of Javier Mascherano after a spell on the sidelines through injury.
Arda left out of squad
The Argentinean has been given the green light to return to action but he may not be risked from the start with Samuel Umtiti partnering Gerard Piqué in defence. Arda Turan has also received the medical all-clear but will watch the game from the stands after being left out of the squad.
Jérémy Mathieu is also absent after picking up a knock in the victory over Atlético in the Calderón last weekend and will be replaced in the squad by his compatriot Lucas Digne.
Barcelona squad for Sporting:
Ter Stegen, Cillessen, Piqué, Rakitic, Busquets, D. Suárez, Iniesta, L. Suárez, Messi, Neymar, Rafinha, Mascherano, Alcácer, Alba, Digne, Roberto, Gomes, Umtiti.
