Adriano returned from injury and took his place at left-back as Barcelona prepared to face Milan in the Champions League.

The Brazilian defender was out for last weekend’s win over Espanyol, but was deemed fit enough by Tata Martino for the match with the Rossoneri this evening.

Up front, Lionel Messi, Neymar and Alexis Sanchez were named in the XI, whilst Sergio Busquets, Xavi and Andres Iniesta took their places in midfield.

The Italian side meanwhile hand starts to former Real Madrid duo Kaka and Robinho.

Barcelona: Valdés; Alves, Piqué, Mascherano, Adriano; Xavi, Sergio, Iniesta; Alexis, Messi, Neymar

Milan: Abbiati; Abate, Zapata, Mexes, Emanuelson; De Jong, Montolivo, Muntari, Poli; Kaká; Robinho
