16:35 BST: Barcelona's XI is here

16:20 BST: Will Ansu Fati play against Dynamo Kiev?

The return of Ansu Fati has brought some hope back to Barcelona after a more than tough spell in LaLiga and in the Champions League, but whether he will play against Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday is not guaranteed. Coach Ronald Koeman wants to manage his minutes carefully having just returned from a long-term injury, and also with El Clasico coming up on Sunday.

"It's impossible for Ansu Fati to play three full games in seven days," Koeman said in his pre-match press conference. "He is a young player with a lot of quality, and one that stands for the future of this club."
