How Barcelona could line up against Levante

Sports Mole looks at how Barcelona could line up in Saturday night's La Liga clash with Levante.

Barcelona could already be crowned La Liga champions by the time that they take to the field for Saturday night's clash with Levante at Camp Nou.

The Catalan giants currently sit nine points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid with four games left. As a result, should Atletico lose against Real Valladolid on Saturday afternoon then Barca would win the title before kicking another ball.

A record of 24 wins, eight draws and two defeats has brought 80 points, and there is no question that Barca have been, by some distance, the best side in Spain's top flight once again.

Ernesto Valverde's side will be keen to wrap up the title this weekend but will certainly have more than one eye on next week's Champions League semi-final first leg against Liverpool.

Here, Sports Mole takes a look at how Barca could line up against Levante.


POSS BAR XI vs. LEV

Out: Rafinha (knee)

It is difficult to determine exactly what Valverde will have in mind ahead of the Liverpool clash. While there will be a temptation to make wholesale changes, Barca's head coach will certainly want to keep his key players in the swing of things ahead of the European tie.

Lionel Messi and Jordi Alba were named on the bench against Alaves on Tuesday night, but it seems likely that both will return to the starting XI for this one.

Ousmane Dembele might be protected as he builds back to full fitness following a spell on the sidelines, which could mean a start for Philippe Coutinho in the final third of the field.

Clement Lenglet and Arthur could also return to the side, but Carles Alena scored in the win over Alaves and will be hoping to keep his spot in the middle of midfield.

Rafinha - still recovering from knee surgery - remains on the sidelines for the Catalan giants.
