Champions League line-ups: Barcelona & Atletico Madrid

Barcelona are without Sergi Roberto and Samuel Umtiti for tonight’s Champions League clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

The pair are injured so Clement Lenglet and Nelson Semedo stay in central defence and at right-back respectively.

Elsewhere, Sergio Busquets returns in midfield and is partnered by Arthur, but Ousmane Dembele makes way for Lionel Messi up top.

Tottenham, meanwhile, are without Jan Vertonghen, Serge Aurier, Mousa Dembele, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, but Harry Kane nonetheless leads their attack.

The match is being played at Wembley Stadium, where Barca have won the European Cup trophy twice and Spurs beat Real Madrid 3-1 last season.

As for Atletico Madrid, who face Club Brugge this evening, they remain without Gelson Fernandez and Stefan Savic but hand right-back Santiago Arias his full debut.
