Javier Mascherano is out after injuring his hamstring following a challenge from teammate Sergio Busquets in the 4-1 win over Real Sociedad last weekend. The injury has enraged Barcelona fans, who were desperate for the club to sign a new centre half in the summer.
With club captain Carles Puyol still unfit, Marc Barta is likely to deputise at centre half alongside Pique, while Adriano will play at left back in the absence of the injured Jordi Alba.
Barca head-coach Tata Martino must also decide between Xavi and Cesc Fabregas in midfield, while Lionel Messi and Neymar should be partnered by Pedro up front.
Christian Fernandez is back from suspension for Almeria who have a fully fit squad to choose from.
The 2-0 defeat at Malaga was the first time they had failed to scored this season but their defensive frailties remain an issue.
