La Liga Line Ups: FC Barcelona v Valencia CF

FC Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has handed a first ever senior start to teenage striker Ansu Fati. 

Fati came off the bench to become the club's youngest ever La Liga goal scorer in 2-2 draw at Osasuna a fortnight ago, and Valverde has placed his faith in the 16-year old for the visit of Valencia CF to the Camp Nou.

The La Masia academy product is one of two changes from the side that drew at the Estadio El Sadar, with Sergi Roberto and Rafinha replaced by Fati and Arthur Melo.

New Valencia CF bos Albert Celades faces a baptism of fire in Catalonia, and he makes just one change from their 2-0 win against Real Mallorca last time out – with Gabriel Paulista coming into defence for Mouctar Diakhaby.

FC BARCELONA: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Pique, Lenglet, Alba, Melo, Busquets, De Jong, Perez, Griezmann, Fati

SUBS: Pena, Firpo, Todibo, Roberto, Vidal, Rakitic, Suarez

VALENCIA CF: Neto, Wass, Paulista, Garay, Gaya, Parejo, Coquelin, Torres, Moreno, Guedes, Gameiro
