Cesc Fabregas comes in place of the injured Lionel Messi for Barcelona's Champions League clash against Celtic tonight.

Cesc Fabregas has replaced Lionel Messi in Barcelona's starting lineup for their Champions League clash against Celtic in Glasgow.

The Spain international midfielder will play in attack alongside Neymar and Pedro due to Messi's thigh injury that is expected to keep him on the sidelines for three weeks.

Meanwhile, Celtic manager Neil Lennon has named a familiar lineup with Anthony Stokes, Kris Commons and Georgios Samaras all starting in attack.

Celtic: Forster; Lustig, Ambrose, Van Dijk, Izaguirre; Matthews, Brown, Mulgrew, Samaras; Commons; Stokes

Barcelona: Valdes; Alves, Bartra, Pique, Adriano; Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta; Neymar, Fabregas, Pedro
