WATCH LIVE : Barcelona VS FC Sevilla (Laliga)
The home team will be without the services of Pedri and Frenkie de Jong. Xavi made a few changes to his starting eleven last time out.
But he is expected to call back the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Jules Kounde back into the team. They will look to dictate the game of this game and not allow Sevilla to have much of the ball.
Once again, it will be the 4-3-3 formation, where Marc-Andre ter Stegen will be in goal. Joao Cancelo and Alejandro Balde will be the full-backs. Ronald Araujo will feature in the heart of the defence alongside Jules Kounde.
Oriol Romeu will be the defensive midfielder in the centre of the park. He will have the support of Gavi and former Manchester City skipper Ilkay Gundogan.
Raphinha will feature on the right wing, while Portuguese international Joao Felix will continue on the left. Finally, Robert Lewandowski will be back in the starting XI to lead the line for the Catalan giants.
Barcelona Lineup (4-3-3)
Ter Stegen; Cancelo, Koundé, Christensen, Balde; Gündogan, Gavi; Lamine Yamal, Joao Félix, Raphinha; Lewandowski
The visitors will be without the services of Oliver Torres, Mariano Diaz, Marcos Acuna, Marcao, Tanguy Nianzou, and Alfonso Pastor. The defence will have the tough task of keeping a star-studded Barcelona attack quiet.
Jose Luis Mendilibar is expected to make minimum changes to the XI that started in their last outing which was a 5-1 win over Almeria. He will stick with the 4-2-3-1 formation, where Orjan Nyland will be in goal.
Jesus Navas and Adria Pedrosa will be the full-backs for this outing. Former Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos will return to the starting XI, and he will pair up with Loic Bade.
Djibril Sow and Ivan Rakitic will be the two central midfielders. They will form the double pivot in front of the defence. The duo will look to help out their defence and initiate counter-attacks.
Erik Lamela will be the attacking midfielder in this fixture. Meanwhile, Suso and Dodi Lukebakio will be the two wide attackers on the day.
Meanwhile, Youssef En-Nesyri will be the leader of their attack. All four of them found the back of the net in their last outing and they will be confident of getting a positive result heading into this outing.
Sevilla Lineup (4-2-3-1)
Nyland; Juanlu, Badé, Sergio Ramos, Pedrosa; Jordán, Sow, Rakitic, Ocampos, Lamela; Lukebakio
