After a weekend loss to Getafe, Barcelona are desperately in need of a win to keep the gap between them and Real Madrid low going into El Clasico. David Villa stays in the team despite a poor performance, while the Cules will go with a midfield three of Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta and Seydou Keita. Rayo Vallecano are likely to bunker in and make it tough for Barcelona to score. Here are the lineups.
Barcelona Lineup (4-3-3): Valdes; Abidal, Mascherano, Pique, Alves; Keita, Xavi, Iniesta; Sanchez, Messi, Villa
Rayo Vallecano Lineup (4-5-1): Cobeño; Botelho, Arribas, Jordi, Casado; Movilla, Javi Fuego, Lass, Michu, Piti; Tamudo
Kickoff is at 3:00 pm ET. If you live in the USA, you can catch the game on ESPN3 or ESPN Deportes.
