oier is in beacuse jorquera is out. or has left for be more exactly.

it bothers me that iniesta is out, i think they are hidding something from us...

Iniesta and Marquez are training with the group (not fully yet). They just don't want to take any risks. The season will be long so no need to speed things up now.

Our midfield is not paper thin, we got Guddy =)

@ engelin

They are not hidding anything. They have said that Iniesta is not fully recovered from his injury but will probably be ready for the first Liga match or against Shakthar.

I would have like to see Iniesta play too but it's better he keeps recuperating. Barcelona should be able to win the game if they play like last season so no need to hurry Iniesta and risk an injury. However the midfield does need some reinforcement.
