Xavi and Jordi Alba in squad for Paris

The midfielder and full back have both been declared fit and included in the 21-man squad that will play in the Champions League quarter final first leg

The Squad

Valdés, Pinto, Dani Alves, Piqué, Fàbregas, Xavi, Villa, Iniesta, Alexis, Messi, Thiago, Mascherano, Bartra, Sergio, Jordi Alba, Montoya, Abidal, Song, Tello, Oier and Deulofeu.

Xavi Hernández and Jordi Alba will be travelling to Paris for Barça’s Champions League game on Tuesday night against PSG. The midfield’s right hamstring troubles are now behind him and the full back was also declared fully fit on Sunday morning. That means 21 players are available with Víctor Valdés, who was suspended against Celta, also returning to the squad.

Vilanova takes session

Tito Vilanova took charge of the post-match training session on Sunday morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. It was the second session he has taken since returning from the US. Both Xavi and Alba were able to train normally, and they were joined by the reserve team’s Ié, Cá, Oier and Deulofeu.
