The right-back has not been able to play for the club due to registration issues

After playing their last league game in Vigo, Barcelona travel to Japan for a friendly against Andrés Iniesta's Vissel Kobe on Tuesday.

Barça, who are travelling without president Joan Laporta, released the squad list after the 2-1 defeat to Celta Vigo at Balaídos on Sunday.

There are two new additions to the squad from the match against Celta. One is Mexican defender Julián Araujo, a right-back who will play with the No.2 and who has not been able to play throughout the season with either the first team or the reserve team because his registration came late in the winter transfer window. The other addition is the youth player Héctor Fort.

Youngster & absences

In total, five youth teamers are travelling with the first team: Héctor Fort, Pau Prim, Dani Rodríguez, Unai Hernandez and Marc Guiu.

Xavi's absentees for the last game of the season are the injured Balde, Ronald Araujo and Pedri and those of Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, who have already said goodbye to Barça.

The expedition departed on a charter flight from Santiago de Compostela early tMondayhis morning and is due to arrive in Tokyo at around 11.30pm local time.

On Tuesday, they will face Iniesta's Vissel Kobe at 12.30pm Spanish time. The players, except for the internationals, will begin their holidays when they arrive back in Barcelona after.
