Unlike the away team, Barcelona has no problems creating goal opportunities. The trident formed by Messi, Suárez and Neymar is in great shape and should guarantee at least one goal to the home team. Douglas Pereira and Rafinha are in doubt, since they are recovering from physical problems. However, they have a quality squad and many alternatives.

Confirmed Lineup: C. Bravo, J. Mascherano, Dani Alves, T. Vermaelen, J. Mathieu, I. Rakitić, Busquets, Sergi Roberto, L. Suárez, L. Messi, Neymar.
Coach: Luis Enrique.

Coach: Juan Merino.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that there will be a few goals in this match. Barcelona should play as usually, with ball possession and short passes, attacking with many players, imposing a high pace from the first minute. Therefore, the home team should confirm its superiority and win comfortably.
