As FC Barcelona continue to tackle their most important battles, a new one now appears. While they may have lost out on the Spanish Super Cup, the Catalans are still in other competitions ready to fight. One of them just so happens to be the Copa Del Ray, a personal favorite for Barcelona.

Already the record-winners in the competition, they are now met with a new challenger. In the quarter-finals, Barcelona will take on Athletic Club at the San Mames. While it is a difficult ground away from home, Xavi’s men will be prepared to take on the challenge.

Prior to the game, FC Barcelona has now just released their official 22-man squad for the Bilbao clash. While most of the team is the same as the last game against Real Betis, there are some notable inclusions.

Both Joao Cancelo and Andreas Christensen, who took part in the latest training session, are back in the team. They were previously unavailable due to injury, but it seems that they are both now available to be included in the squad list and even take part in the game itself.
