Ronald Koeman's men have been boosted by the return of Sergio Aguero after over 4 months. The recent form of Ansu Fati is also a boost for the Catalan giants.

With the players he has, Ronald Koeman has different options to explore in setting up his starting XI. In this article, we'll be looking at 2 ways the Catalan giants could line up tonight. Check it out below:
Ronald Koeman could settle for the 4-2-3-1 formation in order to allow some of the players to fit in.
Marc Andre Ter Stegen is expected to keep his place in the goal with Samuel Umtiti likely to return to the starting XI. The Frenchman could form a partnership with Gerard Pique in central defense.
Oscar Mingueza could also return to the starting XI as a right-back with Jordi Alba occupying the opposite flanks.

Sergio Busquets could be rested for this game. As such, Sergi Roberto would form a double-pivot partnership with Frenkie De Jong while Coutinho lines up behind the striker.
As for the attacking positions, Sergino Dest, who played as a right-winger the last time out, could keep his position while Ansu Fati stays on the left wing.
Memphis Depay is expected to be the main man up front.

Another option Ronald Koeman could explore is to play with the usual 4-3-3 formation with Marc Andre Ter Stegen still keeping his place in the goal.
Ansu Fati, Memphis Depay, and Sergino Dest could form the attacking trident while Sergio Busquets, Gavi, and Frenkie De Jong also keep their places in midfield.
