Ronald Koeman is expected to make changes to his team and may decide to return Ronald Arau to his starting XI. The Uruguayan has not started since returning from injury, but looks good to be back in the background.

It is unclear whether Araujo will come in instead of Oscar Mingueza or replace Frenkie de Jong and allow the Dutchman to take on his favorite role in the midfield. Gerard Pique is also an option, but it looks like the game might come too soon for the 34-year-old.

It’s hard to see Koeman making many changes, if any, in his environment. Both Pedri and Sergio Busquets look guaranteed to start, while the only big question is where De Jong will play.

Koeman also has to make some big decisions in attack. Captain Lionel Messi will of course lead the team, but who will play together with the Argentine?

Ousmane Dembele may have just cemented his place in the starting lineup with his last breath against Real Valladolid. Antoine Griezmann could also start, but he could give up if De Jong returns to the middle

Possible XI: Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Araujo, Lenglet; Dest, Busquets, De Jong, Pedri, Alba; Messi, Dembele.
