Marc Bartra replaces the suspended Gerard Pique in one of two Barcelona changes for their La Liga trip to Deportivo La Coruna this evening.
Pique’s accumulation of 10 yellow cards for the season against Valencia last Sunday results in a rare opportunity for Bartra in Barca’s starting XI, with usual deputies Jeremy Mathieu and Thomas Vermaelen injured.
Dani Alves also returns to the side in place of Sergi Roberto, while Arda Turan is back in the squad – albeit as a substitute – but Aleix Vidal is absent on technical grounds.
Deportivo La Coruna: Manu; Laure, Sidnei, Navarro, Juanfran; Bergantinos, Mosquera, Borges; Cani; Riera, Lucas
Subs: Pletikosa, Pablo, Luisinho, Cartabia, Fajr, Jona, Jonas
Barcelona: Bravo; Alves, Bartra, Mascherano, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Messi, Suarez, Neymar
Subs: Ter Stegen, Douglas, Arda, Rafinha, Munir, Sergi, Adriano
Referee: De Burgos Bengoetxea
