How Barcelona could line up against Cadiz

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

Barcelona will be looking to bounce back from Tuesday's Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain when they resume their La Liga campaign at home to Cadiz on Sunday.

Ronald Koeman's side suffered a 4-1 loss to PSG in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League clash, leaving them with a mountain to climb ahead of the second leg next month.

The Catalan giants are on an excellent run of form in the league, though, having won each of their last seven, including a 5-1 victory over Alaves at Camp Nou last weekend.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Barca could line up against Cadiz.

Barca will again be without the services of Ansu Fati, Philippe Coutinho and Sergi Roberto this weekend through injury, while an ankle problem is likely to rule Ronald Araujo out of a second successive league game.

Gerard Pique made his return from a knee injury against PSG, though, and the Spaniard should once again line up at the heart of the defence alongside Clement Lenglet.

Koeman is expected to resist the temptation to shuffle his pack following Tuesday's European defeat, with Pedri, Frenkie de Jong and Sergio Busquets set to continue in the middle of the park.

There could be an alteration in the final third of the field, though, with Trincao, who scored twice in the win over Alaves last weekend, potentially taking the place of Ousmane Dembele on the right.

There is unlikely to be a rest for Lionel Messi, though, and Antoine Griezmann should also keep his spot.
