The final matchday of the season is upon fans as Barcelona travel to Balaidos to take on Celta Vigo. The hosts are fighting for their life in La Liga, sitting in 16th place, with the danger of relegation looming large on them.

Barcelona, on the other hand, have nothing to play for, having already been crowned champions of the league. They will, however, look to touch the 90-point mark – a more accurate end result for their dominant season.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen continues in goal, hoping to break the clean sheet record in La Liga with his 27th. Andreas Christensen will be screening him in central defence, partnered with Jules Kounde.

Sergi Roberto has been deployed as a right-back, while Marcos Alonso replaces Jordi Alba on the left, who has played his last-ever game for the Catalans.

Eric Garcia picks up responsibilities as the defensive midfielder with Sergio Busquets gone from the club. Franck Kessie finally gets a start as well, while Frenkie de Jong rounds off the centre of the park.

Robert Lewandowski is the chosen no. 9 once again in the hunt for the Pichichi trophy. Raphinha gets the nod over Ousmane Dembele on the right-wing, while Ferran Torres starts on the left in what could be his final game for the club.

Confirmed Barça XI: ter Stegen; Roberto, Christensen, Garcia, Alonso; Kessie, Garcia, de Jong; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Torres
