Barcelona stick with their 3-4-3 formation for tonight’s Champions League showdown against Manchester City, who name Sergio Aguero as a substitute.

Sergi Roberto’s continued absence sees Barca name three centre-backs for the second game running as Samuel Umtiti is preferred to Jeremy Mathieu.

In midfield, Andres Iniesta returns in the place of Rafinha, while Arda Turan makes way for Lionel Messi to reunite MSN.

City, on the other hand, bench Aguero for successive matches, leaving Kevin De Bruyne to play the role of false nine, as Claudio Bravo faces his former club for the first time.

The clash also sees former Barca teammates Pep Guardiola and Luis Enrique lock horns, the latter coming out on top in their last meeting two seasons ago when the Catalans eliminated Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.

Atleti, meanwhile, sanction just the one change from their 7-1 mauling of Granada at the weekend, Fernando Torres replacing Kevin Gameiro.
