Ferran Torres and Alejandro Balde are expected to start for Barcelona against Valencia, according to predicted XIs

Barcelona faces a crucial La Liga trip to Valencia tonight, and Xavi is expected to make some changes to his team. The busy December schedule has prompted the manager to shuffle his options, following criticism after a recent league defeat to Girona. With a last 16 spot already assured in the Champions League, Xavi opted for a weaker side in the midweek game, but the starting XI at Valencia will be closer to the side that faced Girona. According to the latest from Marca, Joao Cancelo is set to switch to right back, with Alejandro Balde on the left, and Ferran Torres predicted to start in attack with Raphinha dropping to the bench. Valencia, on the other hand, will be without suspended duo Gabriel Paulista and Javi Guerra, with Selim Amallah and Mouctar Diakhaby set to rotate in as cover.
