Predicted Barcelona XI vs Valencia

Barcelona travel down the Mediterranean coast to face Valencia this evening at the Mestalla in the 12th round of La Liga, with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.

The Blaugrana will be hoping to bounce back from the humiliating defeat they suffered against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Xavi is expected to make a couple of changes to the team that played midweek. Gavi will probably get the nod ahead of Franck Kessié, while Ousmane Dembélé is expected to make way for Raphinha.

Alejandro Balde and Marcos Alonso, who both played in the Champions League, will most likely be rested and start the match on the bench against Los Che.

Predicted Barcelona lineup against Valencia

Marca predict that Xavi will field the following starting XI against Valencia: Marc-André ter Stegen – Héctor Bellerín, Jules Koundé, Eric García, Jordi Alba – Frenkie de Jong, Sergio Busquets, Gavi – Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski, Pedri.
