Barcelona travel down the Mediterranean coast to the province of Alacant (Alicante) to face Intercity in the round of last 32 of the Copa del Rey this evening.
Xavi is expected to make several changes to the team that drew 1-1 against local rivals Espanyol and start players who have been struggling for game time this season.
Marc-André ter Stegen will more than likely make way for Iñaki Peña between the sticks, while Héctor Bellerín is predicted to get the nod ahead of Sergi Roberto at right-back.
Ronald Araújo will probably make his first start for the club since his injury in September and Memphis Depay is set to take the place of Robert Lewandowski upfront.
Predicted Barcelona lineup against Intercity
AS predict that Xavi will field the following starting XI against Intercity: Iñaki Peña – Héctor Bellerín, Ronald Araújo, Eric García, Alejandro Balde – Pablo Torre, Franck Kessié, Gavi – Ferran Torres, Memhpis Depay, Ansu Fati.
The match is set to kick off at 9 pm CET.
