How Barcelona could line up against Tottenham Hotspur

Sports Mole looks at how Barcelona could line up for their Champions League Group B clash with Tottenham Hotspur at Camp Nou.

It could be a dramatic night at Camp Nou on Tuesday when Barcelona welcome a Tottenham Hotspur side that needs to win to guarantee their place in the last 16 of the Champions League.

While Spurs and Inter Milan vie for second place in Group B, though, Barcelona are clear of all of that uncertainty and have already secured their spot as group winners.

Ernesto Valverde's side have dropped only two points in the Champions League so far this season and ran out 4-2 winners over Spurs in the reverse fixture at Wembley.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the Spanish giants could line up for Tuesday's match.



Possible BAR XI vs. TOT

Out: Malcom (ankle), Rafinha (knee), Sergi Roberto (hamstring), Samuel Umtiti (knee), Arthur (knee)
Doubtful: None

Barca cruised to a 4-0 derby victory over Espanyol at the weekend, and Valverde is unlikely to make too many changes to his side from that match.

Philippe Coutinho will be pushing for a recall, most likely in place of Ousmane Dembele despite the French winger having joined Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez on the scoresheet on Saturday.

Malcom is not in contention after spraining his ankle, joining compatriots Rafinha and Arthur on the Barcelona injury list.

Samuel Umtiti's continued absence means that Clement Lenglet will start once again alongside Gerard Pique, while Nelson Semedo is also expected to continue his run in the team due to Sergi Roberto's injury.
