Line-ups: Malaga-Barca

Lionel Messi is out of Barcelona's clash with Malaga in La Liga this evening due to the birth of his third son.

Messi posted a picture of his newly-born Ciro on Instagram, and taking his place in Barca's XI at Malaga is Ousmane Dembele, who flanks Luis Suarez up top with Philippe Coutinho.

Elsewhere for the Catalans, Paulinho comes in for the injured Andres Iniesta, who is joined on the sidelines by Nelson Semedo and Denis Suarez.

Malaga, meanwhile, are seven points adrift at the foot of the table and cannot count on injured quartet Recio, Adalberto Penaranda, Adrian Gonzalez and Juan Carlos.

However, they did beat Barca 2-0 on home soil last season to not only keep themselves up but effectively kill off the Blaugrana's title hopes.
