Five changes for Barca?

Carles Puyol and Marc Bartra are speculated as set to start in defence for Barcelona this midweek at Celta Vigo.

On from the Clasico at the weekend, Tata Martino is expected to make a handful of changes to his starting line-up for Week 11’s trip out to Balaidos.

On from leaving Gerard Pique at home for Tuesday’s match, the Coach is anticipated as also ready to hand Javier Mascherano a breather at the back.

Sport speculate that both Bartra and Puyol will be handed starts in defence for the Catalans.

Meanwhile, midfield will likely see Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta rested, with Alex Song coming in and Cesc Fabregas moving back into the middle after a weekend role in attack.

The No 4’s position in the front-line will likely be taken by Alexis Sanchez, whilst Pedro Rodriguez is seen as ahead of Neymar to also start alongside Lionel Messi.
