Barcelona’s big hitters are back for tonight’s visit of Manchester City in the Champions League last 16.

Dani Alves, Jordi Alba, Jeremy Mathieu, Javier Mascherano and Andres Iniesta all missed last weekend’s 2-0 victory over Eibar in La Liga, but they are back in the Catalans’ line-up this evening.

Elsewhere, Luis Enrique gives a huge vote of confidence to usual European first choice Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who replaces Claudio Bravo in goal, despite the importance of their task at Camp Nou.

In the other corner, City appear to have matched Barca’s 4-3-3 formation, with David Silva and Samir Nasri likely flanking lone striker Sergio Aguero in their attacking triumvirate.

Barca have two precious away goals to their name following their 2-1 first-leg win and similarly took a 2-0 lead into the same match last season, before eventually progressing to the quarter-finals 4-1 on aggregate.

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Alves, Pique, Mathieu, Alba; Rakitic, Mascherano, Iniesta; Messi, Suarez, Neymar
