🚨 No Messi as Barcelona name team for Real Betis clash

Barcelona re without captain Lionel Messi for their clash against Real Betis on Saturday evening.

Messi has been rested for Pedri as the first peg in the attacking quartet, playing in the hole behind the striker. Speaking of, that role will be occupied by Antoine Griezmann. Coming off the back of a spectacular display in midweek, Ansu Fati starts on the left, while Ousmane Dembele comes into the XI on the right, hoping to cement that forsaken role.

Sergiño Dest has been replaced by Sergi Roberto in the right-back slot, while Clement Lenglet, too, returns to the XI as part of the back-four. Mainstays Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba retain their place; and so does Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who enjoyed a sensational display against the Ukrainian outfit.

Barcelona will hope to bounce back to get all three points in La Liga after a winless streak of four.
