Luis Enrique has chosen to start with the trio of Messi, Suarez and Neymar up-front as Barcelona seek to avoid back-to-back losses in the league.

Luis Enrique’s attempt at squad rotation had backfired last weekend as they succumbed to a defeat to newly promoted Deportivo Alaves and the Spaniard has chosen to play it safe by starting most of the stars against another newly promoted side in Leganes.

Umtiti’s performance at Celtic has earned him a start in La Liga while Ter Stegen retains his place in goal. It would be interesting to see the formation that has been deployed by Enrique as he has named Mascherano in the starting lineup with no full-backs present, which is likely to mean a 3-man defence.

It is going to be intriguing to see how the 3-man defence plays out in today’s game as Luis Enrique would like to avoid any upset and get Barcelona’s title defence back on track.
