Barcelona B have named their squad for Wednesday's game against Badalona with the notable absence of midfielder Riqui Puig.

New Barça coach called Puig, along with Ansu Fati, Carles Perez and Inaki Pena, up for first-team training and none of them will feature for Garcia Pimienta's side. 

The fact that Puig has not been called up for the B team means he's likely to be involved in Setien's squad for Sunday's game against Granada at Camp Nou. 

Frenkie de Jong is suspended, Carles Alena has joined Real Betis on loan and Arthur Melo is only just coming back from injury, leaving Barça short of numbers in midfield for the league game.
