Indeed, the team is having the best team on paper and unarguably the best-attacking trio as well but many questions have been posed by the team since Barcelona have not been able to win their last five encounters in the league which puts a serious doubt on their contention of winning the trophy back again. Without winning the matches, the team will not improve or prove anything.
BARCELONA: One of the major concerns at the start of the season for Barcelona has been injuries to their maverick players such as Sandro Ramirez, Thomas Vermaelen, ArdaTuran and Jeremy Mathieu. Pique has been suspended and key player RafinhaAlcantara, who unfortunately had to miss the previous two games due to injury, is now available for selection.
Luis Enrique has very limited options in the lineup and should have Dani Alves returning to line up along with Javier Mascherano, Claudio Bravo, and Jordi Alba to complete the defensive line. Sergio Busquets will be playing the middle and will be hoping for a better performance while the front will be covered by Andres Iniesta and Ivan Rakitic. Iniesta is likely to be back again in the side as ArdaTuran is not likely to play. But all eyes will again be on Lionel Messi as he had scored a goal on the weekend and will be looking to come back in form.
Along with Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez will be looking to put their previous performances in the past to rest and look forward to getting back in the goal scoring motion.
DEPORTIVO LA CORUÑA: The team has been playing well in the La Liga season till now as they started well in the campaign. However the team is starting to decline over the coming months but the win again the league leaders is extremely crucial and they would be looking to catch this opportunity against Barcelona as thriving on the bad form of Barcelona and taking advantage of that.
