Barcelona have it all on the line in Munich, where only victory will guarantee them progress in the Champions League. The Bavarians have qualification in the bag and only wins. Xavi, though, has said many times that Barcelona can win there on Wednesday.
The team rested Pique, De Jong and Dembele against Betis, bringing them on as a subs and they will all likely start against Bayern. They have to go for the game from the first minute.
Ter Stegen will start in goal of course, while there may be a three man defence in front of him, in the 3-4-3 formation. Araujo, Pique and Eric Garcia could line up. If that’s the case, Jordi Alba would be on the left wing, while if it’s the 4-3-3 then Araujo may make way for Dest as a right back.
Sergio Busquets, Frenkie de Jong will play. Nico and Gavi too, along with Memphis Depay, to complete the line up.
The Dutchman has to improve his numbers in Europe; this season he’s without a goal or assist. Dembele has played as a sub in four games and is waiting for his first start, in this key clash.
