La Liga line-ups: Levante-Barcelona

Barcelona bring the big boys back but are without a recognised right-back for tonight's visit of Levante in La Liga.

Nelson Semedo's late injury sees him join Sergi Roberto on the sidelines, so Barca go with Thomas Vermaelen, Clement Lenglet and Gerard Pique in a back three.

Elsewhere, Arturo Vidal starts on the right side of midfield and Luis Suarez returns alongside Lionel Messi up top, but Philippe Coutinho is only a substitute.

Levante, meanwhile, have gone four games without defeat and famously beat the Blaugrana 5-4 on the penultimate day of last season to end their hopes of a perfect Liga campaign.
