Elsewhere, following Adriano’s injury, Martin Montoya is named at left-back.

Barcelona: Valdes; Alves, Pique, Mascherano, Montoya; Xavi, Busquets, Iniesta; Alexis, Messi, Neymar

Espanyol: Kiko Casilla; Raúl R, Sidnei, H. Moreno, Fuentes; David López, Abraham, Víctor Sánchez; Thievy, Torje, S. García.
