Champions League line-ups: Barcelona-Tottenham Hotspur

There is no Lionel Messi in Barcelona's XI for their final Champions League group game against Tottenham Hotspur this evening.

Barca have already secured top spot in Group B so Messi is rested, as are Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Gerard Pique, Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Arturo Vidal.

That lets in Jasper Cillessen, Thomas Vermaelen and Munir for rare starts, and they are joined by La Masia graduates Juan Miranda and Carles Alena.

Spurs, meanwhile, are without first-team trio Mousa Dembele, Davinson Sanchez and Victor Wanyama, although the prolific Harry Kane leads their attack.

The Londoners simply need to match or better Inter's result against PSV to join the Blaugrana in the last 16.

Barcelona: Cillessen; Semedo, Lenglet, Vermaelen, Miranda; Rakitic, Alena, Arthur; Dembele, Munir, Coutinho

Subs: Ter Stegen, Pique, Busquets, Denis, Messi, Alba, Vidal

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris; Walker-Peters, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Sissoko, Winks; Eriksen, Alli, Son; Kane

Subs: Lamela, Dier, Llorente, Gazzaniga, Lucas, Davies, Skipp

Referee: Mazic (SRB)
