Suarez And Neymar Rested For Copa Clash

share on:

Luis Enrique has decided to drop both Suarez and Neymar for the Copa del Rey clash with Villanovense.

The Catalans travel to face the Segunda B club in the Cops del Rey clash on Wednesday and it seems they’ll be missing Suarez and Neymar.

And Enrique has said he hopes to leave out more first-team players as he did Suarez and Neymar.

“I would have liked to rest more players and not have to travel, but the standard is good and tomorrow you will see the 11,” Luis Enrique said on Tuesday.

Sergio Busquets, Javier Mascherano, Gerard Pique and Claudio Bravo will also stay at home, while Andres Iniesta has not yet fully recovered from a hamstring injury and is not included.

“Nothing strange has happened with Iniesta,” Luis Enrique added.

“We are not going to risk him. When players are in perfect condition this is when we feel they are available.

“When Andres says he feels 100 per cent is when he will be incorporated into the squad.”
