Barcelona travel to Andalucía to face Real Betis at the Estadio Benito Villamarín in La Liga.
Xavi is expected to make a couple of changes to the side that beat local Catalan rivals Girona 1-0 over the weekend. Robert Lewandowski, who was serving a suspension for red card he picked up last year, will most likely get the nod ahead of Ansu Fati.
Ousmane Dembélé is sidelined with an injury, meaning Gavi will cover on the left wing in his absence. Marcos Alonso is expected to make way for Alejandro Balde at left-back.
A win could see Barcelona temporarily extend their lead in La Liga by eight points.
Predicted Barcelona lineup against Real Betis
AS believe that Xavi will field the following starting XI against Real Betis: Marc-André ter Stegen – Jules Koundé, Ronald Araújo, Andreas Christensen, Alejandro Balde – Frenkie de Jong, Sergio Busquets, Pedri – Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski, Gavi.
The match is set to kick off at 9 pm local time.
