The game is a really important one for the Catalan giants as a loss would be a huge blow to their chances of qualifying for the next round of the Champions League.

The good news for FC Barcelona ahead of the game is that Ousmane Dembele, who has been out injured for a few months, has returned to training and he's in contention to start against Dynamo Kyiv tonight.

In this article, Dozo.ng takes a look at a possible way the Catalan giants could line up with the Frenchman. Check it out below:

Formation

Sergi Barjuan is expected to keep using the 4-3-3 formation.

Goalkeeper

Marc Andre Ter Stegen has been facing criticism lately. However, the German goalie is still expected to keep his place in the goal as Neto doesn't seem to be a quality replacement.

Defense

Due to Gerard Pique's injury, Clement Lenglet could return to the starting XI in the central defensive position. The Frenchman could form a partnership with Eric Garcia.

Sergino Dest, who has been used as a winger in recent weeks, is expected to return to his position at right-back while Jordi Alba also keeps his place in the opposite flank.

Midfield

Teenage sensation Gavi could also keep his place in midfield alongside club captain Sergio Busquets and the returning Frenkie De Jong.

Attack

Due to the absence of Sergio Aguero, Memphis Depay could be deployed to the center-forward position while the duo of Ousmane Dembele and Ansu Fati play as wingers.
