Barcelona defender Jordi Alba remains a doubt for the weekend, after sustaining a muscle injury during the 4-0 home win over Manchester City in midweek.
Gerard Pique was also forced to come off at the Nou Camp who picked up a knock to his ankle, but he should be fit for Saturday.
Midfielder Rafinha is set to be recalled to the line-up ahead of Andreas Iniesta, after scoring a brace in the win over Deportivo La Coruna last week.
Meanwhile, Valencia is likely to name an unchanged side from their 2-1 victory away to Sporting Gijon, with Rodrigo set to spearhead the attack for the home team.
Luis Enrique’s Barcelona return to La Liga action this weekend, when they take on hosts Valencia at the Estadio de Mestalla on Saturday night.
The Catalan giants play their second match in the space of five days, following an empathic 4-0 win over Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday night, which included a hat-trick from Argentine superstar Lionel Messi to make it three wins from three in the group stages.
Furthermore, in the league Barcelona recorded a repeat score-line after smashing four past La Coruna last week, however, Enrique’s side remain fourth in the table trailing leaders Atletico by two points.
On the other hand, Valencia come into the match with three wins out of four in La Liga, including a win over Sporting Gijon at the El Molinón, which moved them out of the bottom three up to 14th place.
When both sides met last season, Barcelona ran riot smashing seven past their opponents in the Copa Del Rey back in February, but the Valencian outfit gained revenge in the league with a 2-1 win at the Nou Camp and they remain unbeaten in their last three matches in this fixture.
