Xavi has rested certain first team players for this game, ahead of two more La Liga games ahead of the World Cup break in November, with Sergio Busquets and Robert Lewandowski staying in Spain.

As per reports from Mundo Deportivo, Xavi stated Inaki Pena and Pablo Torre will both start at Doosan Arena.

Pena is yet to feature for Barcelona this season with Torre restricted to brief substitute cameos in domestic and European action in recent weeks.
