CM – Ivan Rakitic
With not so much importance on this game we think Rakitic will have the chance to show he can be the creative spearhead in the middle for Enrique’s men.
CM – Sergio Busquets
Mascherano is at the back so the holding role will go to this established midfielder who has also found his scoring boot somewhat in recent times.
CM – Rafinha
Andres Iniesta is injured and veteran Xavi should be rested ahead of the league clash with Los Che at the weekend, meaning there is a rare opportunity for this Brazilian.
