Starting XI: Barca vs Atletico

La Liga champions FC Barcelona welcome 2015/16 UEFA Champions League finalist Atletico Madrid to the Camp Nou on Wednesday night – here are the starting line-ups.

The Catalan club come into this game off the back of two convincing victories, a 7-0 thrashing of Celtic in the Champions League and a 5-1 league win over Leganes.

Barca's last home game ended in a surprise 2-1 defeat to newly promoted Alaves two weeks ago, but they will be spurred on by the fact that Atletico have not won a match at the Camp Nou since 2006.

Los Rojiblancos go into this tie full confidence – although they drew their opening two games of the season, Atletico have won their past three matches and conceding no goals along the way.

France's Antoine Griezmann (Marshalls' odds: Griezmann to score at 3.2) has scored the same number of goals as Uruguay's Luis Suarez (Marshalls' odds: Suarez to score at 1.85) and Argentina's Lionel Messi (Marshalls' odds: Messi to score at 1.85) so far this season, having hit the back of the net fourr times.

In team news, the Blaugrana will be without centre back Samuel Umtiti for this fixture as he picked up an injury in training, while Atleti will be missing Alessio Cerci, Miguel Angel Moya and veteran midfielder Tiago Mendes.

Here are the starting line-ups:

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Roberto, Pique, Mascherano, Alba; Rakitic, Busquets, Iniesta; Messi, Neymar, Suárez.

Atletico Madrid: Oblak; Juanfran, Savic, Godin, Filipe Luis; Gabi, Koke, Saul, Carrasco; Griezmann, Gameiro.
