Barcelona have named 26 players in their squad for the Champions League final eight, with Ousmane Dembele included despite the fact he's not yet been given the medical all-clear to return to training. 

Dembele returned to full training last week and it's expected that he will be given the green light to be on the bench against Bayern Munich in Friday's quarterfinal. 

The Frenchman hasn't played a competitive game since November after suffering a number of setbacks on his return from an injury, which led to surgery in February. 

Samuel Umtiti is the only player missing through injury, with Martin Braithwaite travelling with the squad even though he's not allowed to be registered for the competition as he signed after the deadline. 

The full squad, including a number of B team players, is: Ter  Stegen, Semedo, Piqué, Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Luis Suárez, Messi, Dembélé, Neto, Lenglet, Griezmann, Jordi Alba, Braithwaite, Sergi Roberto, De Jong, Arturo Vidal, Junior, Iñaki Peña, Riqui Puig, Ansu Fati, Araujo, Monchu, Mingueza, Konrad, Reis and Jandro.

Barça will fly to Lisbon on Thursday for the game and will train at the Stadium of Light, with Quique Setien and Arturo Vidal speaking to the media beforehand.
