The former Manchester United defender returns to the Blaugrana's first XI after serving a suspension with Carles Puyol dropping to the substitute bench

Pep Guardiola has recalled Gerard Pique into the Barcelona starting line-up for the visit to Sevilla with the defender back after serving a one-game suspension.

The 25-year-old will line-up alongside Javier Mascherano at the back with Carles Puyol dropping to the bench.

Barcelona also bring in Adriano for Isaac Cuenca with the reigning Liga champions reverting back to a 4-4-3 formation after last week's 2-0 win over Racing Santander.

Sevilla continue to be without Alvaro Negredo, who is on the bench, as Frederic Kanoute leads the line for Michel's men with Emir Spahic, Luna and Gary Medel coming into the team for the home side.

Sevilla (4-2-3-1): Palop; Luna, Spahic, Escude, Navarro; Medel, Rakitic; Navas, Del Moral, Reyes; Kanoute

Subs: Varas, Perotti, Deivid, Cala, Trochowski, Baba, Negredo

Barcelona (4-3-3): Valdes; Alves, Mascherano, Pique, Adriano; Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta; Cesc, Messi, Pedro

Subs: Pinto, Alexis, Keita, Puyol, Thiago, Tello, Muniesa
