Setien benches Suarez and starts Braitwaite


Quique Setien has decided to leave Luis Suarez on the bench at the start of Barcelona’s La Liga clash with Mallorca on Saturday. He wants the Uruguayan to get back into action bit by bit after his January knee operation.


Setien will likely start with Griezmann, Messi and Braithwaite up front although Ansu Fati could also be involved.

Suarez has been given medical clearance and is raring to go, but it makes sense for him to come back step by step. Expect to see him appear as a substitute later.
