Neymar misses out on a place in the Barcelona squad against Deportivo La Coruna after picking up a leg injury in training earlier this week.

Neymar misses out on a place in the Barcelona squad against Deportivo La Coruna after picking up a leg injury in training earlier this week.

The forward, who has scored 16 goals in all competitions this season, is replaced by Sandro Ramirez in Barca's frontline alongside Lionel Messi and top scorer Luis Suarez.

In total, Luis Enrique has made seven changes to the side which drew 1-1 with Bayer Leverkusen in the final Champions League group match in midweek, with only Jordi Alba, Ivan Rakitic, Sandro and Messi keeping their place in the XI.

Claudio Bravo returns in goal, while other first-teamers such as captain Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets and Suarez have been restored to the side.

For Deportivo, there are three changes as Faycal Fajr replaces the suspended Pedro Mosquera in midfield while Jonathan Rodriguez comes in up front and Laure Sanabria is selected at right-back.

Barcelona: Bravo; Alves, Pique, Mascherano, Alba; Rakitic, Busquets, Iniesta; Messi, Sandro, Suarez
Subs: Ter Stegen, Bartra, Vermaelen, Mathieu, Adriano, Sergi Roberto, Munir

Deportivo La Coruna: Lux; Laure, Arribas, Sidnei, Navarro; Juanfran, Bergantinos, Fajr, Luisinho; Lucas, Jonathan Rodriguez
Subs: Fernandez, Cani, Medunjanin, Dominguez, Alberto, Lopo, Cardoso
