Ernesto Valverde’s side are yet to taste defeat this season in La Liga but will need no reminding they lost at Espanyol in the Copa del Rey in January. Barca also have a tough Copa del Rey semi-final second leg coming up on Thursday which might influence the team selection.
We should get to see Philippe Coutinho again we might even get a first glimpse of Yerry Mina. It’s a derby so it promises to be a feisty game and Barca will need to be at their best to win it.
