How Barcelona Could Line Up With Aguero, Fati & Memphis

With Jordi Alba back, it is ideal that Ronald Koeman should start with a 4-3-2-1 Formation.

Marc-andre Ter Stegen should retain his spot in goal, while at the back four, Gerard Pique should be partnered by Clement Lenglet in the central defence, as Eric Garcia is suspended. Sergino Dest should return to the right side defence, while fit again, Jordi Alba slot into the left side.

Sergio Busquets in the deep laying Midfield, partnered by Frankie de Jong and Sergio Roberto, as Pablo Having should start from the bench.

Upfront, Ansu Fati should start alongside Memphis Depay in a two man forward behind Sergio Aguero or Luuk de Jong.

Predicted Match Outcome

A 3-1 victory over Valencia may have signalled the return to form for Barcelona and with a host of players very close to first team action, Ronald Koeman will be pleased to have more goal threat options to call upon. Dynamo Kiev are not exactly the opponent to trouble Barcelona tonight, with the Blaugranes likely to win emphatically at Camp Nou.
