Barcelona travel to Moscow today ahead of their Champions League match on Tuesday against Spartak Moscow, who are now coached by former Valencia boss Unai Emery.
21 players will make the trip to Russia along with Tito Vilanova and his staff, but centre-back Marc Bartra will be left behind due to a groin strain he picked up during Barça's 3-1 win over Real Zaragoza on Saturday night.
The youngster is expected to be out for around three weeks and could miss the next five to six games for his club, depending on how the injury develops.
The good news for 'Los Culés' is that Sergio Busquets returns to the side after his two-match suspension, while Barça B players Oier Olazábal, Sergi Roberto and Gerard Deulofeu have been called up for the game. Cristian Tello, who is still under contract with the B team but who regularly features in the first team, will also travel.
Barcelona won the home game against Spartak 3-2 despite going 2-1 down in the second half. Vilanova's side are top of Group G and a win would see them qualify for the knockout phases.
