Mascherano, Dani Alves and Bravo to miss Valencia clash

Barcelona will be without Javier Mascherano, Dani Alves and Claudio Bravo for Wednesday’s Copa del Rey semi-final first leg with Valencia.

Luis Enrique has opted to leave the South American trio out of the squad for the meeting with Gary Neville’s side at Camp Nou.

Full-back Douglas and forward Sandro Ramirez are also not involved, along with midfielder Rafinha, who is still recovering from a knee injury.

Mascherano and Alves played both legs of the quarter-final against Athletic Bilbao and the Liga win over Atletico Madrid on Saturday, and will be expected to return for the league meeting with Levante this weekend.
