The 33-year-old defender endured a miserable outing in the 3-0 first-leg defeat to the Serie A leaders in Turin and was an unused substitute in the weekend La Liga victory over Real Sociedad.

Mathieu has been left out of Luis Enrique's plans for the return fixture, with Javier Mascherano included after he sat out Saturday's 3-2 win with a calf problem.

Goalkeeper Jordi Masip and injured trio Arda Turan, Rafinha and Aleix Vidal were also omitted.
