Barcelona will clash heads with Dynamo Kiev at the NSC Olimpiyskiy on Tuesday night as they look to earn a positive result on the road. The Catalan giants were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Alaves last Saturday. Hence, they will be keen on producing a much-improved showing in the UEFA Champions League in midweek.
Barca will once again set themselves up in a 4-3-3 formation and could make some changes to their starting XI for this game. Clement Lenglet might get a start as Gerard Pique is a major doubt for this game due to overload.
4-3-3 Barcelona Predicted Lineup To Face Dynamo Kiev
Marc-André ter Stegen will function in between the sticks for the Catalan outfit after he shipped in one goal versus Alaves in his last league outing. As mentioned earlier, Clement Lenglet will partner up with Eric Garcia at the centre of the Barca backline as they look to stop the Dynamo Kiev attackers from scoring during the 90 minutes.
Oscar Mingueza could get a chance to catch the eye at right-back while Jordi Alba hopes to put on a productive display as the left-back. Both Barcelona full-backs will have to pick and choose their moments to get forward and join in on the attack.
Ronald Araujo is sidelined for this game, so we can expect Samuel Umtiti to offer cover for the centre-back spots on the bench.
Gavi, Sergio Busquets and Nico Gonzalez will make up the Barca midfield. All three of them will have to work hard collectively to win the battle at the centre of the park and create a few clear-cut chances for the front players in the final third.
Both Pedri and Frenkie de Jong are major doubts for this game and will be in a race against time to be fit on Tuesday night.
Philippe Coutinho is expected to operate as the left-sided wide player while Sergino Dest hopes to produce an eye-catching display from the right. Memphis Depay will once again spearhead Barca‘s attack up top. The Dutch sensation managed to score the only goal for his side last Saturday which will keep him in high spirits ahead of this exciting midweek contest in Europe.
