Barcelona host Celta Vigo at the Nou Camp this evening in the eighth round of La Liga, with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.
Xavi is expected to rotate his team from midweek in order to rest some of his key players before Barcelona’s reverse Champions League fixture against Inter Milan this coming Wednesday.
With the return of Frenkie de Jong from injury, he will most likely start ahead of Sergio Busquets. Due to the injuries of Jules Koundé and Ronald Araújo, Gerard Piqué may make a rare appearance in the starting XI.
Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres are expected to start ahead of Raphinha and Ousmane Dembélé respectively.
