Paulinho starts as a No 10 for an otherwise-full strength Barcelona against Chelsea in tonight's Champions League last-16 first leg.

Paulinho pips Ousmane Dembele to a place in Barca's attack, with Philippe Coutinho ineligible due to turning out for Liverpool in the group stage.

Sergi Roberto is also picked ahead of Nelson Semedo at right-back, in Ernesto Valverde's only other selection headache.

As for Chelsea, Alvaro Morata is only a substitute after not long overcoming a back injury against his former rivals, but Pedro Rodriguez takes on ex-teammate Jordi Alba down the right wing.

The two sides have an illustrious history of facing one another, although the Blues most recently beat the Catalans en route to winning the Champions League in 2012.

Lionel Messi has also failed to score against Chelsea in eight previous meetings.
