Line-ups: Las Palmas-Barca

Barcelona are without Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets for this afternoon’s trip to Las Palmas in La Liga.

Pique has been rested in light of Barca’s Champions League last-16 first leg against Arsenal next week, while Busquets is banned for accumulating a fifth yellow card of the season at Sporting Gijon on Wednesday.

The pair are replaced in the XI by Jordi Alba and Andres Iniesta, with Dani Alves, Javier Mascherano and Sergi Roberto also coming into fold, albeit at the expense of Aleix Vidal, Adriano and Ivan Rakitic.

The two sides’ last meeting – a 2-1 victory for the Catalans at Camp Nou in September – infamously saw Lionel Messi break down with a ligament tear, which would rule him out for the following two months.

Las Palmas: Varas; Garcia, Aythami, Bigas, Garrido; Roque; El Zhar, Tana, Viera, Momo; Willian Jose

Barcelona: Bravo; Alves, Mascherano, Mathieu, Alba; Arda, Sergi, Iniesta; Messi, Suarez, Neymar
