Ronaldinho has been omitted from the Barcelona squad for Thursday´s Copa del Rey semi-final return leg at Valencia.

Coach Frank Rijkaard said the Brazilian was not fit for the tie, in which Barca need to score to cancel-out Valencia´s away goal at the Nou Camp three weeks ago.

"(Wednesday) was the first day (Ronaldinho) has trained with the team for several days," Rijkaard told club website "He wanted to play but we left him out as a precautionary measure."
