Also on the bench are Xavi, David Villa, Pedro and Javier Mascherano, but are all in line to feature in the contest as the game rolls on.
Cristian Tello, Lionel Messi and Alexis Sanchez were amongst the starters for Barcelona, with manager Tito Vilanova also opting to go with Cesc Fabregas and Sergio Busquets in his line-up.
