Team News
Barca will again be without the services of Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Jordi Alba through injury, while ongoing knee problems are also expected to rule Samuel Umtiti out of contention.

Koeman is bound to have one eye on the upcoming clash with Real Madrid, although the Dutchman is still expected to select a strong XI, including Lionel Messi, for Tuesday's European encounter.

Ansu Fati and Philippe Coutinho were both left out of the starting side against Getafe, but the pair should return for this match, while Junior Firpo could be handed a spot at left-back.

Antoine Griezmann struggled to make his mark against Getafe, but the attacker is expected to be in the XI for this game, while Sergio Busquets and Frenkie de Jong are likely to continue in central midfield.
Barcelona possible starting lineup:
Neto; Roberto, Pique, Lenglet, Firpo; Busquets, De Jong; Fati, Coutinho, Griezmann; Messi

As for Ferencvaros, only two members of their first-team squad - Robert Mak and Oleksandr Zubkov - have ever played in the group stages of the Champions League, which is an indication of their inexperience at this level.

There is a strong chance that Rebrov could decide to select the same XI that started against Molde in the second leg of their playoff encounter, with Myrto Uzuni leading the line, while there should also be a spot for Tokmac Nguen, who has scored seven times in 10 appearances in all competitions this season.

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Adam Bogdan joined the club over the summer, but Denes Dibusz is the team's vice-captain and should get the nod between the sticks for this match.
Ferencvaros possible starting lineup:
Dibusz; Lovrencsics, Blazic, Botka, Heister; Kharatin, Somalia; Nguen, Siger, Zubkov; Uzuni
