Champions League: revealed the starting XI of Manchester against Manchester United [Full list]

Barcelona director Ernesto Valverde should nominate an XI unchanged from the side that beat the Atletico Madrid at the weekend, for Wednesday's clash between the Champions League and Manchester United.

The Spanish champions scored a heavy blow to the La Liga title race with a 2-0 win against the Atletico and now travel to the Old Trafford for the first leg of their European quarter-final.

According to the Catalan newspaper Sport, Valverde is preparing to maintain the same XI that he used in most important games this season, injury permitting.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen will definitely start at the door, while Gerard Pique and Clement Lenglet will continue their collaboration with the central quarterback.

Jordi Alba will start with the left-back, although on the opposite side Valverde will have to decide between Nelson Semedo and Sergi Roberto.

In midfield, Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic are nailed, while Arthur will probably be preferred to Arturo Vidal, thanks to his ability to manage match time.

In attack, Ousmane Dembele is still not completely recovered despite the trip with the team to Manchester, so Philippe Coutinho will join Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi in attack.

The bench will consist of Jasper Cillessen, Semedo, Umtiti, Vidal, Alena, Malcom and, if passed, Dembele.
