Team News

Barcelona
Barca revealed on Sunday afternoon that Ousmane Dembele had picked up another hamstring problem against Cadiz, meaning that the France international is facing an extended period on the sidelines.

Dembele joins Ansu Fati, Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto on the treatment table, while Samuel Umtiti is again expected to miss out due to ongoing knee problems.

Despite already booking their spot in the round of 16, Koeman is expected to select a strong side on Tuesday, with Messi, Philippe Coutinho and Antoine Griezmann likely to start.

There could be a change at the back with fit-again Ronald Araujo replacing Oscar Mingueza, while Pedri and Miralem Pjanic are pushing for spots in the starting side.
Barcelona possible starting lineup:
Ter Stegen; Dest, Araujo, Lenglet, Alba; Pjanic, De Jong; Pedri, Messi, Coutinho; Griezmann

Juventus
As for Juve, Merih Demiral, Giorgio Chiellini and Gianluigi Buffon remain on the sidelines through injury, but Alvaro Morata is available as his suspension only relates to domestic matches.

Morata is likely to join Ronaldo as part of a front two at Camp Nou, meaning that Paulo Dybala could drop to the bench, with Federico Chiesa and Dejan Kulusevski operating in the wide areas.

Pirlo has decisions to make in the middle of the park with Aaron Ramsey and Weston McKennie both pushing for starts, but Adrien Rabiot could line up alongside Rodrigo Bentancur.

Arthur left Barca to join the Old Lady last summer, but the Brazil international is likely to be on the bench.
Juventus possible starting lineup:
Szczesny; Cuadrado, Bonucci, De Ligt, Sandro; Kulusevski, Rabiot, Bentancur, Chiesa; Morata, Ronaldo

Head To Head
Tuesday's clash will be the 13th meeting between the two sides, and Barca lead the head-to-head record five wins to Juve's three, with the other three matches being drawn.

Barca ran out 3-0 winners in their last clash at Camp Nou in September 2017, while Juve have not recorded a victory away to the Catalan giants since the quarter-finals of the 2002-03 competition.

The most high-profile meeting between the two sides came in the 2015 Champions League final, which ended in a 3-1 Barca victory courtesy of goals from Ivan Rakitic, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

Prediction: Barcelona 1-1 Juventus
