Team News: Marc-Andre ter Stegen comes in for Claudio Bravo

Marc-Andre ter Stegen replaces Claudio Bravo in Barcelona's starting lineup for the trip to Athletic Bilbao.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen has replaced Claudio Bravo in Barcelona's starting lineup for this evening's trip to face Athletic Bilbao in La Liga.

The Chile international departed for Manchester City in the week, coinciding with Ter Stegen's return to fitness following an injury layoff.

Luis Enrique has kept faith with the front three trio of Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Arda Turan, meanwhile, the latter of whom was axed from Turkey's latest squad ahead of their upcoming matches.

Barcelona are otherwise unchanged from their 6-2 win over Real Betis on the opening weekend, while opponents Bilbao have gone with two changes from their 2-1 defeat to Sporting Gijon.

Ander Iturraspe and Javier Eraso are brought into the starting lineup in place of Mikel San Jose and Raul Garcia, as the Lions look to pull off a shock scalp at San Mames.

Athletic Bilbao: Iraizoz; De Marcos, Boveda, Laporte, Balenziaga; Iturraspe, Benat, Eraso; Williams, Aduriz, Susaeta

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; S.Roberto, Pique, Umtiti, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, D.Suarez; Messi, Suarez, Turan
