Arda Turan dropped from Barcelona squad against Valencia

Arda Turan has been dropped from the Barcelona squad against Valencia due to picking up a suspension in his last game.

The reigning La Liga champions will be hoping to return to wining ways after a rocky few weeks that has seen their lead at the top of the lead slashed to just goal difference over Atletico Madrid.

Barca will however, move three points clear of Atleti if they beat Valencia tonight.

Luis Enrique may me without Turan but he will start with the MSN – Messi, Suarez and Neymar.

Barca crashed out of the Champions League mid-week after losing 2-0 against Atleti at the Calderon stadium.
