Barcelona v Levante: Expected Starting Line-ups – Arda Turan set to keep place in team

Arda Turan

La Liga leaders Barcelona face an away trip to Levante today as they look to extend their unbeaten streak to 28.

Arda Turan started midweek in the 7-0 victory over Valencia alongside Andres Iniesta in midfield which gave Barcelona a more offensive midfield that devastated Los Che.

Turan is expected to keep his place in the starting line-up considering Luis Enrique could be tempted to play a more attack minded midfield against opposition that could struggle to cope defensively with the Barcelona onslaught.

Barcelona have won their last nine games since Turan made his debut in the 4-1 win over Espanyol in the Spanish Cup last month.

Neymar, Messi and Luis Suarez are all expected to lead the attack and the defence is likely to be comprised of Pique and Mascherano as centre-backs while Alba and Dani Alves are almost certain to start as full-backs.
