How Barcelona could line up against Celta Vigo

Sports Mole looks at how Barcelona could line up in Saturday's La Liga clash against Celta Vigo.

Barcelona will be looking to reclaim first position in La Liga from Real Madrid when they continue their 2019-20 campaign away to Celta Vigo on Saturday afternoon.

The Spanish champions have dropped to second in Spain's top flight, but a point would be enough to see them return to the summit ahead of Madrid's next game against Espanyol on Sunday night.

Barca will enter this match off the back of a 1-0 win over Athletic Bilbao on Tuesday night, but they have only been victorious in six of their 15 away league matches during the 2019-20 campaign.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the Catalan giants could line up against Celta.

Out: Ousmane Dembele (hamstring), Frenkie de Jong (calf), Sergio Busquets (suspension)
Doubtful: Sergi Roberto (rib)

Barca will again be without the services of Ousmane Dembele due to a long-term hamstring problem, while Frenkie de Jong is out until July with a calf issue.

The Spanish champions will also be missing key midfielder Sergio Busquets due to the yellow card that the Spain international picked up against Athletic last time out.

Ivan Rakitic is set for a return in the middle of the park, while there could also be a starting role for Riqui Puig, who has featured in Barca's last three league matches off the bench.

Puig's involvement could largely depend on Arthur as the speculation surrounding the Brazilian's future continues to gather pace, with a move to Juventus seemingly on the cards.

Sergi Roberto is struggling to overcome a rib problem, which could see Nelson Semedo continue at right-back, but there is likely to be a change in the final third of the field.

Indeed, Luis Suarez, who is only just back from a long-term knee injury, could be protected ahead of the clash with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night, potentially opening the door for Martin Braithwaite to join Antoine Griezmann and Lionel Messi in the final third of the field.
