Though against a newly promoted Rayo side, Barcelona can afford to give the untested players more chance. Ernesto Valverde has tided the storm that was growing in his tenure in September and is all set to lead this team for a long time to come.

Rayo Vallecano vs Barcelona - Live Football Score, Match 105 - Summary and Highlights.
Goalkeeper Marc-Andre Stegen was rested for the midweek cup tie and will return to the starting line up against Rayo. The German goalkeeper is in the form of his life and is a shield for the back four. Sergi Roberto and Clement Lenglet could be rested after their exploits over the past few games. Nelson Semedo though will retain his place along with the experienced Gerard Pique. In attack, Luis Suarez would look to add to the hat-trick he scored against arch-rivals Real Madrid. Ousmane Dembele and Phillipe Coutinho would likely support the Uruguayan in the attack. Arturo Vidal got a much-needed outing in mid-week and can expect to be a start tonight.
Rayo Vallecano have been struggling in the league and have conceded twenty goals in the first ten games of the season. The good news for the home side is that Gorka Elustondo is match fit and should start the game. Midfielder Giannelli Imbula and Oscar Trejo have been substandard so far in the league but should continue to play in the middle. Raul De Tomas will have to battle upfront against Pique to come up with a goal which is an issue with Rayo at the moment.
