Samuel Umtiti Returns As Barcelona Confirm Squad For Copa Del Rey Game With Hercules

The Frenchman has been given the medical green light following his hamstring injury.

Barcelona's squad for Wednesday's Copa del Rey game with Hercules has been named, with the return of Samuel Umtiti a highlight.

The Frenchman has been given the medical green light following his hamstring injury, and will likely feature in the first leg game, with the second leg coming at Camp Nou in December.

Several first team players have been afforded a night off, with only Andre Gomes and Sergi Robero featuring from those who started at Anoeta in the draw with Real Sociedad at the weekend.

The majority of the squad is heavily made up of Barcelona B players, with the likes of Marlon and Borja Lopez getting a chance.

Javier Mascherano and Andres Iniesta are also missing, but rather than injury it is due to suspension. The pair should feature in El Clasico.

The full Barça squad is as follows: Cillessen, Masip, Denis Suarez, Arda, Rafinha, Paco Alcacer, Digne, Sergi Roberto, Andre Gomes, Aleix Vidal, Umtiti, Alena, Carbonell, Nili, Borja Lopez, Cardona.
