Luis Suarez will still miss the match against Athletic Bilbao, as his two-game suspension was upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sports.
Enrique did not pick Suarez for the trip, but was hopeful the CAS will side and he’ll join the trip.
But with the referee’s report stating Suarez incited a confrontation in the dugout after the 4-1 win over Espanyol in the Copa.
“I’m waiting for you, come here! You’re a waste of space,” he reportedly shouted at Espanyol’s players.
Barcelona maintains Suarez didn’t utter such words, and appealed to the CAS, who denied them.
The forward already missed the return leg of the Espanyol game and will now miss the first leg of the semifinals against Athletic.
