Tito Vilanova names David Villa in Barcelona's starting line-up for their Primera Division match against Deportivo this evening, while there are also four further changes to the side that drew 2-2 with Real Madrid in their last Liga outing.
Martin Montoya replaces the injured Dani Alves at right-back and Alex Song comes in to the team to partner Javier Mascherano at centre-back despite Adriano playing in that role against Real Madrid.
In midfield Xavi makes way for Andres Iniesta, who completes a midfield three with Cesc Fabregas and Sergio Busquets.
Upfront Cristian Tello starts alongside Lionel Messi and David Villa, as Pedro is named as a substitute despite impressing for Spain during the recent international break.
