Confirmed Lineup: C. Bravo, J. Mascherano, Jordi Alba, Dani Alves, Piqué, Busquets, Iniesta, I. Rakitić, L. Suárez, Neymar, L. Messi.
Coach: Luis Enrique.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario to this match is that both teams will score, at least, one goal. Both teams are very strong in the offensive approach and have some weaknesses in the defensive. 
So, it' expected that will be a balanced match, with many opportunities in both areas
