Starting XI: Sporting vs Barca

Spanish giants FC Barcelona travel to the El Molinon to face mid-table Sporting Gijon in their latest La Liga encounter – here are the starting line-ups.

The league champions will be looking to bounce back to winning ways after their draw with Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.

Barcelona have a great record against their opponents, who they demolished 6-0 by in April thanks to a Luis Suarez triple on the night.

Sporting have not tasted victory against the Catalan club in 17 matches – the last time the Asturians won against Barca was in 1995, more than two decades ago.

The Blaugrana have won 11 of their past 13 away matches in La Liga, and have also managed to score at least three goals in their past three matches against Sporting.

In terms of goals, the Spanish giants will be looking to Suarez (Marshalls' odds: Suarez to score at 2.2) and Neymar (Marshalls' odds: Neymar to score at 2.2) on the day as their influential star Lionel Messi will miss the tie due to a groin strain.

Here is how the sides will line up:

Sporting: TBA

Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Roberto, Piqué, Mathieu, Digne, Gomes, Busquets, Arda, Rafinha, Suarez, Neymar.
