La Liga Line Ups: Barcelona v Celta Vigo By Feargal Brennan Barcelona will be aiming to keep the La Liga title pressure on Real Madrid as they host Celta Vigo tonight. Boss Ernesto Valverde is boosted by the return to fitness of striker Luis Suarez, and he takes his place on the bench. Valverde makes changes from the side that drew 0-0 with Slavia Prague in midweek Champions League action. Junior Firpo is in for the injured Jordi Alba at left back, with Samuel Umtiti replacing Clement Lenglet at centre back. Sergio Roberto and Ansu Fati also come in, in place of Ousmane Dembele and Sergio Busquets.
Celta Vigo lost 1-0 at home to Getafe last week, their fourth straight La Liga defeat, and manager Oscar Garcia shuffles his pack for the trip to the Camp Nou. Pape Cheikh, David Junca and Pione Sisto all come in, with Denis Suarez, Brais Mendez and Gabriel Fernandez missing out.
