Barcelona Rest Luis Suarez And Neymar For Copa Del Rey Game

Luis Enrique has left Luis Suarez and Neymar out of his 16-man Barcelona squad for the Copa del Rey clash with Villanovense.

The Catalan side travel to Extremadura to face the Segunda B club on Wendesday without the Uruguayan and Brazilian forwards – as well as the injured Lionel Messi.

However, the coach admitted he had hoped he would be able to leave out more first-team players.

“I would have liked to rest more players and not have to travel, but the standard is good and tomorrow you will see the 11,” Luis Enrique said on Tuesday.

Sergio Busquets, Javier Mascherano, Gerard Pique and Claudio Bravo will also stay at home, while Andres Iniesta has not yet fully recovered from a hamstring injury and is not included.

“Nothing strange has happened with Iniesta,” Luis Enrique added. “We are not going to risk him. When players are in perfect condition this is when we feel they are available.

“When Andres says he feels 100 per cent is when he will be incorporated into the squad.”

The Spaniard has included four Barcelona B players in his group for the fixture, with Gerard Gumbau, Sergi Samper, Aitor Cantalapiedra and Wilfrid Kaptoum all travelling.

“As much as I want to give possibilities for the B team, only four players can play,” he said.

“There must always be seven first-team players on the pitch.”

    what confuses me is the idea that it has to be only pay to play to generate revenue. there are plenty of examples of mmo&1quo;s that are f2p but have extra bonus content for p2p. i agree that making it only p2p is ridiculous, the added 180 bucks a year adds up, not to mention the extra bonus items that im sure youll be able to buy using real money as well. saying it has to be this way to afford regular updates is complete garbage when there are examples of thriving mmo&1quo;s that are doing exactly what they seem to think is impossible. having both f2p and p2p optio1 would work out perfectly, you offer bonus content for p2p and upgrades and dlc&1quo;s that you can only access by buying them, the crowd that they are specifically wanting to attract are still going to be paying money, and they will generate revenue from the f2p playe1 that will drop in 20 bucks here and there for some bonus content. theres a reason why most mmo&1quo;s decide to go with this idea, because it MAKES THEM MORE MONEY and allows access for more playe1.

    You’ve probably already read or heard about this, but Sean Murray, the guy who founded Hello Games, said in an interview that there was a unive1al ‘malevolent force’ (how he described it) that’s always pe1istent in No Man’s Sky. But he said that he didn’t want it to be too over the top.nI haven’t been more excited for a game as much as No Man’s Sky in a long time. From what I’ve heard, it’s not just the open-world we’ve become used to but an open-unive1e. If there’s plenty to do, loads to see and explore, and more importantly freedom, I don’t see how it can fail.
