La Liga line-ups: Barcelona-Celta Vigo

Barcelona are as full-strength as can be in the circumstances against Celta Vigo in La Liga this evening.

Samuel Umtiti, Rafinha, Malcom and Sergi Roberto all remain sidelined so Ernesto Valverde makes just one change to the Barca side who thrashed Levante 5-0 a week ago as Nelson Semedo replaces the injured Thomas Vermaelen.

However, Celta were the only team who did not lose to the Blaugrana in La Liga last season, while new boss Miguel Cardoso has rejuvenated them, leading the Galicians to two wins from their last three League games.

Nonetheless, the Catalans have scored a combined 13 goals in their three previous home meetings with the Vigo club.
