Busquets to make it - How Barcelona could line up against Levante

The Spaniard was forced off with a facial injury against Atletico Madrid but should be fit enough to start on Tuesday evening

Barcelona should have influential midfielder Sergio Busquets available for selection for Tuesday's La Liga clash against Levante.

The World Cup winner was involved in a nasty clash of heads with Stefan Savic during the weekend's 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid which resulted in a fracture and contusion on the face.

However, if Ronald Koeman wants to risk him then Busquets will be able to play wearing a face mask.

The Barcelona boss only has two players unavailable for selection in Philippe Coutinho and Ansu Fati, with the latter undergoing knee surgery last week after missing most of the season.

The two major matches in Spain over the weekend saw Barcelona take on Atletico and Real Madrid face Sevilla, and they both highlighted just how tight things are at the top of the table between all four clubs as both games ended as draws.

At the moment, Barca are third in the table two points behind leaders Atletico and level with Madrid, with three games remaining.

Koeman will therefore be forced into playing his strongest XI.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen will start in goal behind a back three probably consisting of Ronald Araujo, Gerard Pique and Clement Lenglet, with Oscar Mingueza dropping to the bench from the weekend.

Should Busquets be passed fit he will start in a midfield five alongside Sergino Dest and Jordi Alba in the full-back roles and Pedri and Frenkie de Jong.

Ousmane Dembele will be pushing for a start but he'll probably have to settle for a place on the bench, with Antoine Griezmann partnering Lionel Messi in attack.
