The Catalans are 11 points clear at the top of the table with six games remaining after they defeated Valencia 2-1 on Saturday at the Nou Camp.

The big news is that Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are on the bench as Ernesto Valverde rotates his side ahead of the Copa Del Rey final against Sevilla this weekend.

Lucas Digne starts whilst Gerard Pique, Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitic and Andres Iniesta are missing out through injury.

Valverde has made a host of changes with only Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, Philippe Coutinho and Paulinho staying in the starting lineup from Saturday’s game against Valencia.
