Barcelona name Pedro Rodriguez in their starting XI for tonight's Supercopa first leg against Athletic Bilbao at San Mames.

The Manchester United target had started Barca’s 5-4 UEFA Super Cup victory over Sevilla on Tuesday as a substitute, but his match-winning cameo sees him replace Rafinha from the offset on the left wing this evening.

Elsewhere, the likes of Thomas Vermaelen, Marc Bartra and Sergi Roberto come into the fold as La Blaugrana look to enjoy a repeat of last season’s Copa del Rey final against the Basques, which finished 3-1 in their favour.

Athletic Bilbao: Iraizoz; De Marcos, Etxeita, Laporte, Balenziaga; San Jose, Benat, Eraso; Susaeta, Aduriz, Sabin

Subs: Herrerin, Boveda, Gurpegi, Lekue, Elustondo, Aketxe, Sola

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Alves, Bartra, Vermaelen, Adriano; Mascherano, Sergi Roberto, Rafinha; Messi, Suarez, Pedro

Subs: Bravo, Pique, Rakitic, Busquets, Iniesta, Sandro, Munir

Referee: Gonzalez Gonzalez
