Pique and Depay out? How Barcelona could line up against Levante

Xavi will have to make do without a number of defenders due to injury ahead of Sunday's La Liga clash with Levante

Barcelona manager Xavi will need to make sure that he shuffles his team enough to contend with his side’s packed schedule of games in the business end of the season.

The Catalan giants face a tricky away trip to Levante on Sunday and know fine well that anything but a strong performance could see them slip up and drop more points in the Spanish top flight.

In defence the Spanish giants are still without Samuel Umtiti, Sergino Dest and Seri Roberto, so we’re likely to see a back four of Jordi Alba, Gerard Pique, Ronald Araujo and Dani Alves.

Fortunately for the Barcelona manager, there are no fresh injury concerns in midfield so we should see his side start with a midfield trio of Frenkie de Jong, Pedri and Sergio Busquets.

Ansu Fati is still working his way back to match fitness, while Memphis Depay is also an injury doubt, so Xavi will probably stick with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ferran Torres and Ousmane Dembele in attack.
