Barcelona v Las Palmas: Expected Starting Line-ups – Arda Turan set to start

Man United transfer news

Barcelona will extend their unbeaten run to a record 32 games if they avoid defeat against Las Palmas today.

Arda Turan is expected to start for Barca on the right side of midfield alongside Andres Iniesta and Roberto. Busquets is out suspended and Ivan Rakitic is likely to be rested ahead of the mid-week Champions League game against Arsenal.

Turan is suspended for the Gunners clash and Luis Enrique is therefore likely to start the Turkish international for the second game running.

The bearded winger also started in the 3-1 win over Sporting Gijon last week. Barca have won all 10 games Turan has featured in since his debut against Espanyol last month.
