Dani Alves comes into the Barcelona side for tonight’s visit of Rayo Vallecano in La Liga – but there is still no Andres Iniesta.

Alves was a substitute in the 2-1 defeat to Sevilla a fortnight ago, but Iniesta’s continued absence and Javier Mascherano’s perceived inability to play with Sergio Busquets means the Brazilian is reinstated at right-back, with Sergi Roberto in midfield.

Elsewhere, Sandro Ramirez pips Munir El Haddadi to the vacant striking position left behind by Lionel Messi.
