How Barcelona could line up against Levante

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

Barcelona will continue their 2019-20 La Liga campaign with a trip to Levante on Saturday afternoon.

The Catalan giants have won their last seven matches in all competitions, including each of their last five in Spain's top flight to move to the top of the table after a shaky start.

Ernesto Valverde's side put five goals past Real Valladolid at Camp Nou on Tuesday night, while they thumped Levante 5-0 in the corresponding match during the 2018-19 campaign.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the Spanish champions could line up against Levante.


POSS BAR XI vs. LEV

Doubtful: Samuel Umtiti (knee), Jordi Alba (knock)

Barca have no confirmed absentees for this weekend's match, although Samuel Umtiti is again a doubt as the Frenchman struggles to overcome a knee problem.

Jordi Alba asked to be replaced in the latest stages of Tuesday's clash with Valladolid after suffering a knock, although the issue is not expected to keep the Spain international out of this match.

Ousmane Dembele, meanwhile, has served his two-match suspension and is now available, but Antoine Griezmann is expected to return to the starting XI to join Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi in attack.

Arthur was rested against Valladolid, but the Brazilian should return to the side for this match, while Nelson Semedo is expected to keep out Sergi Roberto at right-back despite the latter's return to fitness.

Elsewhere, the rest of the team picks itself with Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Gerard Pique, Sergio Busquets and Frenkie de Jong among those who are sure to be in the starting XI.
