Both teams played to a 0-0 draw in the opening leg in Milan a week ago and will have it all to do at the Camp Nou tonight.

Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola has decided to start in the attack with the promising Isaac Cuenca, who partners Lionel Messi and Cesc Fabregas.

Amongst those on the bench are Thiago Alcantara, Alexis Sanchez and Pedro.

Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will no doubt be the dangerman for AC Milan against his former employers.

The Swede will start up top with Brazilian Robinho, while the likes of Kevin-Prince Boateng and Clarence Seedorf are expected to offer some attacking option.
