Alert! Alert! No Lionel Messi! Alert! Alert!
Thank you. Now back to your regularly scheduled previews.
Tata Martino could hand Neymar his first start for the Blaugrana with the news that Lionel Messi has been left out of the squad after failing to recover from a thigh injury. Even without arguably the world’s best player, Barcelona have a plethora of options up front to fill the role with Neymar and Cesc Fabregas being the most likely candidates.
There will likely be some rotation in the lineup from Martino with his side facing a the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup on Wednesday. via Malaga vs. Barcelona – SBNation.com
