Barcelona's new defender, Yerry Mina, the only footballer who stayed out of it by technical decision, takes his place.

The Barcelona forward had pulled out of the squad to face Malaga in LaLiga, the Spanish club have announced earlier today.

Barca lead the Liga standings on 69 points with 11 games remaining, enjoying an eight-point lead over nearest challengers Atletico Madrid.
