Without Lewandowski and with Ansu Fati, Barcelona announces the list for the duel against Real Madrid

O Barcelona announced, this Tuesday, the athletes listed for the classic against Real Madrid, for the semifinal of the Copa del Rey.

The great reinforcement of the Catalans was the return of striker Ansu Fati, recovered from a knee injury. The 20-year-old Spaniard returned to training on the pitch with the rest of the squad and will be an option for the team’s offensive sector.

Despite the good news, coach Xavi Hernandez will still have headaches to assemble the starting lineup in the confrontation. Center forward Robert Lewandowski suffered a left hamstring injury last Monday and will not be available for the game. In place of the top scorer, it is likely that the coach will improvise Ferran Torres in the position.

In addition to the Pole, Barcelona will also be without striker Dembelé and midfielder Pedri for the knockout match, both injured. The Brazilian Raphinha should be the substitute for the Frenchman in the offensive sector, while Kessié should act in place of the Spanish athlete.

The first leg will take place this Thursday, at 5 pm (BrasĂ­lia time), at the Santiago BernabĂ©u stadium. The return game will be at Camp Nou, Barcelona’s home, on April 5.
