Barcelona The Uruguayan is on the bench
Luis Suarez has recovered from the knee surgery he had in January, but he hasn’t been selected from the start by Quique Setien for Barcelona’s Saturday night match away at Real Mallorca.
The coach admitted in his pre-match press conference that the Uruguayan isn’t ready to play 90 minutes and he won’t be starting at Son Moix, with Martin Braithwaite given the nod alongside Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann instead.
In defence, Ronald Araujo is included given that Clement Lenglet is suspended and Samuel Umtiti isn’t 100 percent.
The complete Barcelona line-up is as follows: Marc-Andre ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Gerard Pique, Ronald Araujo, Jordi Alba; Frenkie de Jong, Sergio Busquets, Arturo Vidal; Lionel Messi, Martin Braithwaite, Antoine Griezmann.
