Barca has yet to concede a goal at home this season on domestic duties, and welcome a side which held it to a 1-1 draw last year.


PROBABLE LINEUPS

BARCELONA


Valdes

Alves, Mascherano, Adriano
Xavi, Busquets, Iniesta, Thiago
Messi, Cesc, Villa


MALLORCA


Aouate
Cendros, Victor, Ramis, Bigas
Pina, Tejera
Pereira, Nsue, Castro
Hemed

Cesc Fabregas is back in action, and is likely to start against a side which has struggled for form this season. Pedro is definitely out after injuring himself in the midweek defeat of Granada, while Gerard Pique is still recovering from a hamstring injury and is unlikely to be risked.

Alexis Sanchez remains sidelined with a longer-term hamstring problem, and Ibrahim Afellay is also out long-term with a cruciate injury.

Mallorca remains winless in their last three outings and has recently changed coach when Michael Laudrup was replaced in the dugout by former Athletic Bilbao boss Joaquin Caparros.


DID YOU KNOW?
  • Barcelona's impeccable home record was brought to an end by Sevilla last weekend, which held the champion to a 0-0 draw.
  • Its home record, however, remains 21 goals scored in five matches, with none against.
  • Barcelona hasn't conceded in its last seven matches; its last concession was versus Valencia in a 2-2 draw on Sept. 21.
  • Mallorca recently disposed of former Barcelona playmaker Michael Laudrup after a poor run of results. Joaquin Caparros is now in the dugout.
  • The Islanders secured a surprising 1-1 draw at Camp Nou last season, with Emilio Nsue cancelling out Lionel Messi's curling effort.
