Starting XI: Malaga v Barca

Spanish La Liga 

Teams: Malaga v FC Barcelona

Date: 08 April 2017

Venue: La Rosaleda

Free-scoring FC Barcelona make the trip to La Rosaleda to face struggling Malaga this evening - Here's how the two sides line up.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h45.

The Catalan giants come into the clash in some fine form, having won their last three La Liga encounters, which included an impressive 3-0 win over Sevilla on Wednesday evening.

Luis Enrique is without the services of Arda Turan and Rafinha Alcantara, with the latter being ruled out for four months, while Gerard Pique and Ivan Rakitic are suspended.

Malaga, meanwhile, boosted their hopes of survival during the week after they defeated Sporting Gijon 1-0 to move eight points clear of the drop zone.

The hosts will be without defener, Bakary Kone and midfielder Zdravko Kuzmanovic for tonight's clash.

The Catalan giants have not lost in their last 10 visits to La Rosaleda, recording eight victories and two draws. While they last suffered defeat at Malaga in 2003.

Here's how they line up:

Malaga: Kameni; Rosales, Llorente, Luis Hernandez, Ricca; Recio, Camacho; Juanpi, Fornals, Juan Carlos; Sandro.

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Mascherano, Umtiti, Mathieu, Alba; André Gomes, Busquets, D. Suarez; Messi, L. Suárez, Neymar.
