Line-ups: La Real-Barca

Ousmane Dembele and Andres Iniesta are substitutes for Barcelona against Real Sociedad this evening.

The pair have been rested by Ernesto Valverde as Paulinho plays just off Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez up top, while Andre Gomes partners Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic in midfield.

La Real, meanwhile, are able to start Gero Rulli in goal after he passed a late fitness test, although Mikel Oyarzabal - their hero in a 1-0 victory over the Blaugrana two years ago - is only on the bench.

Barca have not won at Anoeta in over a decade, a run that includes another 1-0 defeat to La Real in January 2015, when Lionel Messi was famously dropped from their XI.
