Levante are sitting in fourth place in La Liga, but FC Barcelona apparently feel that they're performing a bit above their talent level. Of course, they would be correct, but it's still mildly arrogant of Barcelona to throw youngster Isaac Cuenca into a La Liga match against a team in decent form. Daniel Alves, Pedro and Thiago have all been left out of the first XI and will start on the bench. Here are the lineups.
Barcelona lineup (4-3-3): Valdés; Mascherano, Puyol, Abidal, Sergio Busquets; Xavi, Cesc, Iniesta; Alexis, Cuenca, Messi
Levante lineup (4-4-2): Munúa; Venta, Ballesteros, Del Horno, Juanfran; Torres, Farinós, Iborra, Valdo; Koné; Pedro Lopez
The game kicks off at 2:00 pm ET, 7:00 pm GMT and 8:00 pm local time from Camp Nou. You can catch the game on GolTV in both the USA and Canada, as well as on Sky Sports 2 in the UK.
