How Barcelona could line up against Cadiz

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

Barcelona will be eyeing a fourth straight victory in all competitions when they continue their La Liga campaign away to high-flying Cadiz on Saturday night.

Ronald Koeman's side have beaten Dynamo Kiev, Osasuna and Ferencvaros in their last three matches, scoring 11 times and conceding zero,during an impressive run of form.

The Catalan giants have only picked up 14 points from their nine league games this term, though, and are currently down in seventh position in Spain's top flight.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Barca could line up against the newly-promoted side.

Barca still have serious injury problems at the back, with Samuel Umtiti, Ronald Araujo, Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto all unavailable for selection once again.

Araujo is thought to be in the latter stages of his recovery from a hamstring issue, but Oscar Mingueza should keep his spot alongside Clement Lenglet at the heart of the defence for this match.

There will be changes from the side that started against Ferencvaros in the Champions League on Wednesday night, with Lionel Messi, Frenkie de Jong and Philippe Coutinho all set to return.

Ousmane Dembele was on the scoresheet in the European Cup and could retain his spot, potentially joining Coutinho, Messi and Antoine Griezmann in the final third of the field, meaning that Pedri could miss out.

Sergio Busquets played another 45 minutes on Wednesday night as he recovers from a knee issue, and the experienced midfielder should now be ready to feature in the XI this weekend.

Martin Braithwaite made it four goals in his last three appearances with a strike against Ferencvaros, meanwhile, but the 29-year-old is likely to be back on the bench against Cadiz.
