+ Seydou Keita will be out for two weeks after sustaining an injury against Athletic Bilbao. Initially it looked like he'd broke a bone, but thankfully that turned out not to be the case and he's just got a sprain.
+ Other injury scares for Rafa and Yaya turned out to be nothing, so they've both been included in the latest squad.
+ Having been rested because of muscle fatigue in the last game, Xavi is now back in the squad. Along with Leo and Puyi he has been tipped to return to the starting line-up, although with Pep you never know.
+ Incidentially, Leo is on 49 goals [in 118 games] for Barca right now. Hopefully 50 is just around the corner.
+ Speaking of goalscoring, Sammy has scored 11 goals in his last 12 games. So he's got some form at the moment.
+ Pep says:
"It's typical of this club to underestimate teams, but in Europe one mistake can cost you the game."
So the message is no complacency. A win here would put Barca in an excellent position in terms of qualification for the next round and take the pressure off during the month of December with all those difficult league games against Sevilla, Valencia, Real and Villarreal.
