Barcelona begin the new campaign with some new faces and most of the same questions about their defense as they faced most of last season.
The arrival of new head coach Gerardo Martino creates a bit of uncertainty as to what exactly we'll see from Barca, those major changes are not likely. New signing Neymar is expected to make his league debut alongside Lionel Messi who has recovered from a thigh injury that threatened to keep him out of this week's match.
Cesc Fabregas is also available after recovering from a sprained ankle picked up during the team's Asia tour late in the summer.
There are still plenty of concerns about the defense as Barca have yet to add another central defender despite the glaring need. Martino appears ready to use Gerard Pique and Javer Mascherano as his starting pair, with youngsters Marc Batra and Frank Bagnack as coverage.
