Just a couple changes in the back for Pep Guardiola today.
Jose Pinto gets the start in goal, which has been the norm for all of Barca's cup matches this season. There had been some speculation that Victor Valdes might get the start since this match is for the trophy, but Guardiola is sticking with his pattern and also ensuring Valdes is rested and ready for the Champions League semifinal next week.
Carles Puyol is not in the starting XI after his hamstring issues from the weekend, so Guardiola will call on Javier Mascherano to cover in the central defense next to Gerard Pique. Dani Alves and Adriano are at their usual fullback positions.
