Barcelona are away to Real Mallorca away from home in tonight’s La Liga clash.

According to reports, Barcelona boss Xavi Hernandez may make slight amendment to his squad, as his side would face Mallorca before hosting Inter Milan next Tuesday.

One player who could get a rare start is Franck Kessie.

The Ivorian arrived on a free transfer from AC Milan during the summer, and he’s different from the other midfielders at the club.

However, the 25-year-old has found game-time hard to come by under Xavi Hernandez, with just one La Liga start this season and a total of 82 minutes appearance in the Spanish top flight.

According to SPORT, Kessie could be in line for a rare start when Barcelona face off against RCD Mallorca on Saturday night.

With injuries to some of his players, Kessie may be a surprise name in the starting team.
