Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has made numerous changes to his team for the Copa del Rey first leg trip to Huesca as Andres Iniesta returns.
Out go regulars Claudio Bravo, Dani Alves, Gerard Pique, Javier Mascherano, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Neymar, Messi and Luis Suarez, all rested, while the good news is that Iniesta returns from injury after more than a month out.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen takes over in goal with Brazilian defender Douglas coming in at right-back to make up a back-four alongside Jeremy Mathieu – the only member of the team that played Valencia at the weekend to retain his place – Marc Bartra and Adriano.
Iniesta is joined in midfield by Ivan Rakitic and youngster Sergi Samper, with Enrique opting for a three-pronged attack of Pedro, Munir and Rafinha.
Huesca boss Luis Garcia Tevenet conceded pre-match that he does not expect to challenge Barcelona for possession and goes with a 4-2-3-1 formation.
