Barcelona holding midfielder Sergio Busquets passes a late fitness test to start against Roma.

Barcelona holding midfielder Sergio Busquets has passed a fitness test to line up against Roma in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash.

The Spaniard sat out last weekend's 3-1 win against Leganes with a toe injury, but is back in the first XI in the Italian capital.

Barca rested several key players at the weekend, but have recalled Jordi Alba, Samuel Umtiti and Andres Iniesta to mirror the lineup they sent out for the first leg in Spain.

Hosts Roma have made several changes from the first leg, with Radja Nainggolan replacing Lorenzo Pellegrin in midfield.

Further forwards, Patrik Schick replaces the injured Diego Perotti, and in defence Juan Jesus is preferred to Bruno Peres, who drops to the bench.

Barcelona head into the match with a 4-1 lead from the first leg in Spain.

Roma: Alisson; Manolas, Fazio, Jesus, Kolarov; Nainggolan, De Rossi, Strootman, Florenzi; Dzeko, Schick
Subs: El Shaarawy, Gonalons, Peres, Skorupski, Pellegrini, Gerson, Under

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Pique, Umtiti, Alba; Busquets, Iniesta, Rakitic, Roberto; Suarez, Messi
Subs: Vermaelen, Cillessen, Paulinho, Alcacer, Suarez, Gomes, Dembele
