Barcelona v Valencia: Confirmed Starting Line-ups – Arda Turan starts

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona

Arda Turan will start for Barcelona against Valencia in the Copa del Rey semi-final first-leg tie at the Camp Nou.

The bearded winger will make his sixth start since making his debut last month in the same competition against rivals Espanyol.

Turan has also started in every cup game he has been eligible for – he missed the last Spanish Cup game against Athletic Bilbao due to having the flu.

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique will start with Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar upfront meaning Turan will start on the right side of midfield.

Messi and Andres Iniesta will play their ninth Copa del Rey game tonight as Barcelona aim to keep their 28 game unbeaten run alive.
