The second El Clasico of the season is just a few hours away as Barcelona hosts Real Madrid on Wednesday in the first leg of a Copa del Rey semifinal clash.
All eyes leading up to the game are on whether their Argentine wizard, Lionel Messi will be fit to play.
Barcelona have however included Messi in the 19-man squad, but Valverde must still leave out one player from the squad, meaning there are still chances for Messi to miss out from the squad due to the thigh injury he sustained against Valencia last weekend.
Messi did not take part in full training on Monday, but returned to join his team-mates on Tuesday for their final session.
Ousmane Dembele misses out due to with an ankle problem and joins goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, who has been ruled out for six weeks with a calf injury, on the sidelines, as well as Samuel Umtiti and Rafinha.
