FC Barcelona host Las Palmas in La Liga on Saturday, where they’ll look to make amends for their shock defeat at 4-1 at Celta Vigo on Wednesday night.
Spanish La Liga
Teams: Barcelona Vs Las Palmas
Venue: Camp Nou, Barcelona
Time: 4:00 PM
Having suffered a humbling defeat against Celta in mid-week, Luis Enrique will hope his side can fight back with a convincing win on Saturday.
Barca will still be without the injured Thomas Vermaelen, Claudio Bravo and Rafinha for the encounter, although Jordi Alba is likely to make a return to the team.
Las Palmas, who are sitting at 12th on the La Liga standings, have two players missing for the game, Angel and Javi Castellano.
Despite Barca’s display at Celta, they have been in good form at home, having won eight of their last nine matches at Camp Nou.
Lionel Messi will be hoping to return to form on Saturday, as the Argentine found himself unlucky in their last match, where he struck the woodwork a couple of times.
Here is how the teams will line-up:
Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Bartra, Adriano, Rakitic, Busquets, Mascherano, Messi, Suárez, Neymar
Las Palmas: Javi Varas, Simón, Alcaraz, Aythami, Bigas, D.Castellano. Al medio Hernán, Wakaso, Roque. Arriba Viera, Araujo
