Ernesto Valverde has opted to keep the 16-year-old in his XI after his impressive showing against Valencia, with the returning Luis Suarez taking Carles Perez's place. 

Lionel Messi is also fit again but only for a place on the bench. He has not played for Barça since the Copa del Rey final almost four months ago. 

Valverde doesn't want to take any risks with the Argentine and will ease him back into action little by little. Ansu and Suarez are joined by Antoine Griezmann in attack.

For Dortmund, there's a start for former Barça striker Paco Alcacer against his former teammates. 

Full teams:

BORUSSIA DORTMUND: Bürki; Achraf, Akanji, Hummels, Guerreiro; Sancho, Witsel, Delaney, T. Hazard, Reus; Alcácer.

FC BARCELONA: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Piqué, Lenglet, Jordi Alba; Busquets, De Jong, Arthur; Ansu Fati, Luis Suáre, Griezmann.
