Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde brings back his star men for the club's La Liga meeting with Celta Vigo.

Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has brought back his star men for the club's La Liga meeting with Celta Vigo.

In midweek, Valverde rested a number of his key players for the Copa del Rey clash with Real Murcia, but the likes of Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi return for the Catalan giants on Saturday afternoon.

Only Gerard Pique retains his place in the side, with the centre-back being withdrawn before the hour mark having been given game time due to being suspended for the match against Valencia last weekend.

Celta make the trip to the league leaders sitting in ninth place, but the visitors must deal with the suspension of Jony for this match.

However, Sergio Gomez is able to take his place in the defence, while former Liverpool forward Iago Aspas will be hoping to add to his seven goals for the season in attack.

Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Pique, Umtiti, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Iniesta, Rakitic, Paulinho; Messi, L.Suarez
Subs: Cillessen, Digne, Gomes, Paco, D.Suarez, Vermaelen, Vidal

Celta Vigo XI: Ruben Blanco; Mallo, Fontas, S.Gomez, Brais; Jozabed, Lobotka; Wass, Sisto, M.Gomez; Iago Aspas
Subs: Alvarez, Cabral, Guidetti, Hernandez, Mor, Radoja, Roncaglia
