Barcelona spring a surprise in their early kick-off against Leganes, going 3-4-3 and playing left-footed Rafinha as a right-sided midfielder.
Despite having the likes of Sergi Roberto, Denis Suarez and Arda Turan available, Luis Enrique gives a first start of the season to Rafinha, who has experience of playing as an inverted right winger, although less so as a midfielder.
Elsewhere, Sergio Busquets’ absence is filled by Javier Mascherano, the Argentine dropping into central defence, Andres Iniesta comes in for Andre Gomes and the ‘MSN’ of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar all feature up top.
Barca will be hoping to fare better at Butarque than they did the last time they faced a newly-promoted team, when they were stunned 2-1 at home by Alaves just a week ago.
