No change. Luis Enrique has picked the exact same eighteen players for today’s game at home to Osasuna (7.30pm CET: TICKETS HERE) as he did for the Clásico at Real Madrid this weekend. And we all know how well things turned out at the Santiago Bernabéu.
Neymar Jr is still suspended and Rafinha, Aleix Vidal and Jeremy Mathieu are all out through injury, while Jordi Masip has once again been left out and Barça B’s Carles Aleñá does get the nod.
The full squad is thus as follows: Ter Stegen, Cillessen, Piqué, Rakitic, Sergio, Denis, Arda, A. Iniesta, Suárez, Messi, Mascherano, Paco Alcácer, Jordi Alba, Digne, Sergi Roberto, André Gomes, Umtiti and Aleñá (28).
Three points would out Barça three points clear at the top of the table, at least temporarily, with Real Madrid’s game with Deportivo starting almost immediately after the final whistle has blown at the Camp Nou. Relegation threatened Osasuna have collected seven points from their last four games and will be doing everything they can to get something out of their trip to Catalonia.
