Team News

Dynamo Kiev
Dynamo were without 13 first-team players for the reverse game at Camp Nou due to nine coronavirus cases, three injuries and one suspension, which makes their performance even more remarkable.

Georgy Tsitaishvili, Denis Garmash, Mikkel Duelund, Alexander Karavaev, Tudor Belutse and Mykola Shaparenko all tested positive for coronavirus ahead of the clash, joining the other three players in quarantine.

The home side still have a number of absentees for this match, including Oleksandr Tymchyk, Nazariy Rusyn and Vladimir Kostevych through injury, but the squad is in much better shape from the clash at Camp Nou.

Vladyslav Supriaha led the line against Barca last time out, and the 20-year-old should again feature in the final third of the field on Tuesday night.
Dynamo Kiev possible starting lineup:
Bushchan; Kedziora, Zabarnyi, Mykolenko, Karavaev; Shepelev, Harmash; Shaparenko, Buyalskyi, De Pena; Supriaha

As for Barca, Ronald Araujo, Ansu Fati and Sergio Busquets remain on the sidelines through injury, while Samuel Umtiti is also a doubt due to ongoing knee issues.

The Catalan giants suffered more problems against Atletico with Pique picking up a knee problem, which could rule him out for an extended period, while Sergi Roberto suffered a muscular injury in the same match and has emerged as a major doubt for Tuesday's contest.

Frenkie de Jong could drop in alongside Clement Lenglet in the middle of the defence, potentially opening the door for Carles Alena to earn a start in the middle of the park.

Philippe Coutinho made his return from injury as a substitute on Saturday, meanwhile, and the Brazil international could now feature in the starting XI on Tuesday night.
Barcelona possible starting lineup:
Ter Stegen; Dest, De Jong, Lenglet, Alba; Pjanic, Alena; Griezmann, Coutinho, Pedri; Messi

Prediction: Dynamo Kiev 1-2 Barcelona
