Starting XI: Valencia v Barca

LaLiga

Teams: Valencia v Barcelona

Date: 25 January 2020

Venue: Mestalla

FC Barcelona will be out to put some distance between themselves and Real Madrid when they take on Valencia at the Mestalla - Here's how they line up.

Quique Setien got his Barcelona reign off to a positive start as Lionel Messi's solitary strike secured a 1-0 win over Granada last weekend.

The Catalan giants also avoided a cup scare on Wednesday after rallying from behind to defeat third division outfit Ibiza FC 2-1 in the Copa del Rey.

Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez remain long-term casulties, although Frenkie de Jong returns from suspension.

After advancing in the Copa del Rey this week, Valencia will be out to get their LaLiga campaign back on track after a 4-1 loss to Real Mallorca last week.

Los Che find themselves in seventh spot, four points adrift of fourth spot held by Sevilla.

The Catalan giants registered a 5-2 victory when these two sides met at the Camp Nou earlier this season, although this fixture ended in a 1-1 draw last season.

Here's how they line up:

Valencia: Domenech; Wass, Paulista, Garay, Gaya; Soler, Coquelin, Kondogbia, Ferran; Gomez, Gameiro.

Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Pique, Umtiti, Roberto, Alba, Busquets, Arthur, De Jong, Ansu Fati, Messi, Griezmann.
