Ivan Rakitic and Sandro Ramirez come into the Barcelona XI for this evening’s visit of Eibar in La Liga.
The midfielder has been rewarded for his brace against BATE Borisov in the Champions League midweek with a starting berth alongside Sergio Busquets and Javier Mascherano, while the forward is preferred to Munir El Haddadi in Lionel Messi’s absence.
Elsewhere, Claudio Bravo returns in place of Marc-Andre ter Stegen between the sticks, while Marc Bartra keeps his place in central defence, with Thomas Vermaelen again named as a subsitute, but Andres Iniesta must wait a little longer to announce his return.
Today also marks a year to the day that Luis Suarez made his official Barca debut in the 3-1 Clasico defeat to Real Madrid.
