Reports claim that Xavi will start for Barcelona in their Champions League clash against Scottish champions Celtic at the Camp Nou.

Xavi is expected to return to the Barcelona XI for their Champions League clash against Scottish champions Celtic at the Camp Nou.

The Spanish midfielder has been suffering with a calf injury, but according to reports in Spain, the experienced playmaker will line up in the middle of the park.

Neymar, meanwhile, is expected to start in the middle of attack, with the Brazilian flanked by Pedro and Alexis Sanchez due to Cesc Fabregas's absence.

Barcelona have already qualified for the latter stages, but need a point to be sure of topping the group.

Neymar celebrates with his team-mates after scoring the opening goal during the La Liga match between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid CF at Camp Nou on October 26, 2013
