Why Xavi didn't call up 'The Monster' Faye for Betis clash amid Christensen injury

Many Barcelona fans expressed visible disappointment upon discovering the squad for the Betis clash on Sunday, notably missing Mika Faye among the 20-man squad list.

With two key centre-backs, Andreas Christensen and Inigo Martinez, unavailable for the game, having a reliable backup would have come in handy. Why didn't Xavi call him up?

Do not rush to blame the Blaugrana boss. Not this time.

The thing is, Barca B are facing Sociedad the very same day. Rafa Marquez wouldn't want his starter to miss the game.

Now, you might wonder why Pau Cubarsi made the squad then. Well, the 16-year-old, along with Marc Guiu and Hector Fort, is actually part of Juvenil A, the under-19 side.
