UEFA Champions League

Barcelona's Potential Starting Line-Up For Tomorrow's UEFA Champions League Match

When Barcelona hosts Dynamo Kiev at Camp Nou on Wednesday, they will be looking for their first win in the UEFA Champions League campaign. On matchday two, Ronald Koeman's team were defeated 3-0 by Benfica, while their Ukrainian counterparts were thrashed 5-0 by Bayern Munich. pressure would soon increase on Koeman when Benfica marched to victory by the same scoreline on matchday two, despite a 3-0 home defeat to a side as rampant and unforgiving as Bayern Munich.

Nunez took all three minutes to break the deadlock before Rafa Silva doubled Benfica's lead in the 69th minute, and Nunez would double his score for the evening from the penalty spot 10 minutes before the full-time siren blew in an embarrassing experience for La Blaugrana.

widespread speculation that his time in the Catalan dugout may be coming to an end, Koeman has kept Joan Laporta's faith in him for the time being, and oversaw a much-needed 3-1 win over Valencia at the weekend, with Ansu Fati, Memphis Depay, and Philippe Coutinho scoring after Jose Gaya's stunning goal.

Barcelona defender Eric Garcia was sent off for two bookable offenses in the loss to Benfica and will miss this match, therefore Clement Lenglet will fill in for him alongside Gerard Pique.

Barcelona's defensive lines have been decimated by Ronald Araujo's injury, and Pedri is also out for the time being, but there is hope that Ousmane Dembele will be able to play this week. Aguero made his Catalan debut off the bench against Valencia, but the Argentine is unlikely to be considered for a starting role just soon.
