Alfonso Pedraza, Nicolas Jackson, Giovani Lo Celso and goalkeeper Filip Jorgensen missed the game at Elche that ended in a 3-1 defeat and the injured players are not expected to be available against Barcelona.

Meanwhile, for someone who was not involved at the weekend, Pau Torres is likely to partner Raul Albiol at centre-back.

Gerard Moreno will spearhead the attack.

Ousmane Dembele's hamstring injury will keep him out of action until around March, with Sergio Busquets joining him on the sidelines after hurting his ankle in the Sevilla win.

Xavi may look to include Ansu Fati in Busquets' absence which is likely to be the only change in the XI, meaning Gavi moves into a midfield position.

Jordi Alba keeping out Alejandro Balde at left-back is not set to change either, with Robert Lewandowski stationed in the center of attack.

Barcelona Possible XI: Ter Stegen; Kounde, Araujo, Christensen, Alba; Pedri, De Jong, Gavi; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Ansu Fati




Ter Stegen, Pena, Tenas


Araujo, Christensen, Alonso, Alba, Kounde, Garcia, Balde


Gavi, Pedri, Kessie, Roberto, De Jong, Torre
