Andre Gomes is the suspended Sergio Busquets’ deputy for a much-changed Barcelona tonight against Leganes in La Liga.
Luis Enrique rotates his squad after Tuesday’s horror show at Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, with Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba and Andres Iniesta all benched.
Javier Mascherano’s hamstring injury, however, sees Gomes moved into the role of midfield pivot, despite his below-par performance at Parc des Princes.
Arda Turan also misses his third straight game due to an ongoing thigh problem.
