Jordi Roura has called up 20 players for the first leg of the Champions League last 16 tie against AC Milan on Wednesday. The players will travel to Italy on Tuesday and train in Milan on Tuesday evening.

The squad trained with the official Champions League ball this Monday and Roura was able to check out the fitness of Xavi Hernández and David Villa, who worked with the rest of the group. Xavi has been given the medical okay to travel, whilst Roura and Villa agreed that he would stay in Barcelona to continue training to build up his strength following his renal colic attack last week.

Adriano Correia, who has a problem with his right hamstring, worked with the physiotherapist and will also miss out on Wednesday’s game, whilst Barça B youngster Oier Olazábal also took part in the session and is included in the 20-man squad.
