Champions League line-ups: PSV-Barcelona

Samuel Umtiti is a late dropout from the Barcelona XI for tonight's Champions League clash with PSV.

Barca tweeted in the build-up to kick-off that Umtiti suffered knee discomfort in training on Tuesday, so Clement Lenglet replaces his fellow Frenchman in central defence.

Elsewhere, the Blaugrana cover Luis Suarez's injury by using Lionel Messi as a false nine and flanking him with the returning Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele, who rescued a point at Atletico Madrid in their last game.

Ivan Rakitic is also back in the middle of the park, although Arthur joins Suarez on the treatment table, as does substitute goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.

The Catalans already sewed up their place in the last 16 with a 1-1 draw at Inter before the international break, while third place and the Europa League are the best PSV can hope for in Group B.

Lionel Messi hit a hat-trick in a 4-0 Barca victory when they last met the Dutch champions back in September.
