January signing Papu Gomez, who scored as a substitute in the 3-0 win over Getafe, is pushing for a start, while Acuna, Ocampos, and Oscar remain in the recovery room.

Barca, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 3-2 win over Real Betis at the weekend, with Trincao scoring a late winner. 

Leo Messi has been impressive in front of goal ever since he signed a new deal with the Catalan giants, and we are positive that he will prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
