Barcelona welcome back Carles Puyol and Xavi for their trip to Ajax in the Champions League this evening.

The Blaugrana go into the match knowing that a win would guarantee them top spot in Group H, and they do so with the experienced pair back in the starting XI.

Javier Mascherano replaces Marc Bartra from the team that beat Granada at the weekend, whilst Alex Song comes in for Sergio Busquets.

In form Alexis Sanchez misses out though, with Cesc Fabregas playing the false nine role.

Ajax: Cillessen; Van Rhijn, Veltman, Moisander, Boilesen; Klaassen, Blind, Serero; Schöne, Hoesen, Fischer

Barcelona: Pinto; Puyol, Pique, Mascherano, Montoya; Xavi, Song, Iniesta; Pedro, Cesc, Neymar
