Barcelona will face Cadiz in their next La Liga fixture as they travel to Nueva Mirandilla Stadium on Saturday to clinch all three points. The Catalan club come into the match on the back of an emphatic 5-1 victory over Viktoria Pizen in the opening round of the UCL group stages. They’ve remained undefeated in the last four La Liga fixtures and will be looking to keep it that way.
Xavi could opt for the 4-3-3 formation allowing Gavi to return to the midfield as he gets the nod over Frenkie De Jong while Raphinha operates on the right wing as Ousmane Dembele takes a spot on the bench.
4-3-3 Barcelona Predicted Lineup Vs Cadiz
Marc-André ter Stegen will function in goal for Barca as he looks to secure a clean sheet in this away encounter. Eric Garcia returns to form the centre-half partnership with Ronald Araujo at the heart of Xavi’s defence as they hope to keep the opposition at bay during the match.
Jordi Alba will probably keep his place at left-back while Jules Koudne hopes to catch the eye on the other side as the right-back. Both of them will be allowed to go forward and stretch the opposition.
Sergi Roberto and Alex Balde will be available for selection on the bench as they provide cover for the full-back positions.
Xavi could opt for a midfield of Pedri, Sergio Busquets and Gavi. All three Barca midfielders will be given the responsibility to dominate the possession at the centre of the park and create enough chances in front of the goal for their teammates up front.
Franck Kessie and Frenkie De Jong will have to settle for a place on the bench as they await their chance to make an impact in the latter half.
Ansu Fati will feature as the left-sided wide player while Raphinha looks to put in an influential display on the opposite flank.
Robert Lewandowski will lead the line for the Catalan giants in the attacking third. The Polish forward is been in great form recently and would be expected to produce another impressive display this weekend.
Ferran Torres and Ousmane Dembele will have to settle for a spot on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second half.
