After considering the recent performances, we can safely say that Barca will go into this match as the favorite. Xavi’s side has not only improved in chance creation but also started to show solidity in defense with structural improvement. Their last league game against Sevilla was a complete performance.

Xavi is expected to field his strongest elven in order to continue Barca’s quest for a maiden Europa League trophy. Real Madrid are 12 points clear at the top of the table despite Barca’s amazing run in La Liga since Xavi has arrived, So Barca’s trophy hopes now fully rest on the Europa League.

Although right-back spot remains a subject of concern for the Catalan giants as Sergino Dest hasn’t recovered from his injury yet and Dani Alves is not registered for the European competition. Ronald Araujo is expected to start as a right-back while Eric Garcia is most likely to join Gerad Pique in the center of the defense.

Fc Barcelona

Formation: 4-3-3

Goal Keeper: Ter Stegen

Defenders: Araujo, Pique, Eric, Alba

Midfielders: Busquets, Pedri, Gavi

Forwards: Adama, Aubameyang, Ferran
