No Areola in goal, expect Sergio Asenjo there!

Here's the call;

If you count, there are 19; with both Bakambu (ankle) and Baptistao (flu) in danger of missing out, Marcelino will have to decide who to drop on the day.

Juan Román Riquelme will be at El Madrigal tomorrow to see this match.  That's the excuse I have for showing you this video of a 3-0 win over Barca, with Gonzalo Rodriguez scoring the second goal from a Riquelme free kick, and Forlan scoring the first from a Riquelme pass...

And here (courtesy of sister site Barca Blaugranes, with squad numbers and everything) is the Barca team.  Rafina has been cleared to play but isn't included here, and Andres Iniesta misses out with a muscle injury.  As for the rest, no surprises, you may have heard of a few of these guys....
