Javier Mascherano and Andres Iniesta are back in the Barcelona side for this afternoon’s visit of Real Sociedad in La Liga.

The pair missed Tuesday’s 6-1 demolition of Roma through injury but return in defence and midfield against La Real respectively.

Elsewhere, Claudio Bravo replaces Marc-Andre ter Stegen in goal and Jordi Alba is rested for Jeremy Mathieu at left-back.

Eusebio Sacristan, meanwhile, leads out La Real against his former club, having managed Barca B for four years prior to his sacking at the tail end of last season.
