Valverde promises Celta rotations

Barcelona Coach Ernesto Valverde has vowed to ring the changes for his side’s clash with Celta Vigo on Tuesday night.

Gerard Pique, Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic are among those not to travel while Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi are rumoured to be rested.

“We will make changes as the team needs to go through this situation,” Valverde told reporters, as cited by Barcelona club media.

“This is a very important week for us as we are having our third tie in the space of a week and this game comes ahead of the cup final.

“We know what Celta are about, we have already played them three times and we know it will be a tough match – they are having a great season, they are fighting for Europe.

“Celta have the ability to manage matches well, to put pressure on us and we expect more of the same.”
