Barcelona comes into this match with a commanding 3-1 away win. This is not time to get complacent though, as Milan reminded us by almost throwing away an insurmountable lead yesterday. The year of injuries continues, with Abidal, Fontas, Puyol, Thiago, Afellay, Sanchez, and Villa all sidelined. Bartra, Muniesa, Montoya, Sergi, Dos Santos, and Tello have been drafted to replace them, but Montoya and Dos Santos will watch from the stands.
Starting XI: Valdes, Alves, Pique, Mascherano, Adriano, Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta, Fabregas, Messi, Pedro
Bench: Pinto, Muniesa, Bartra, Keita, Sergi, Cuenca, Tello
The match starts at 2:45 EST.
