Lionel Messi is now the tenth highest scorer in the history of the Spanish La Liga, while Xavi has reached a landmark in seventy five goals for the Blaugrana.
Gerard Pique and Dani Alves have returned to training, while other key defender Puyol is still injured. Thiago is still unavailable cause of his long-term knee injury.
The Barcelona’s coach may give the opportunity to the young players of the squad. So the appearance of Marc Bartra, Cristian Tello and Jonathan dos Santos is expected.
David Villa is likely to start from the beginning, after he opened the score for the Catalans against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday evening. He is still looking for his best goal scoring form.
