FC Barcelona have announced the squad list that will take on Dyanmo Kyiv in gameweek three of the UEFA Champions League. The hosts will hope to continue their perfect run in the competition, while the visitors will look to register their first win of the season.
The biggest news comes in the form of Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who has neem named as part of the squad list. His involvement in the game, though, entirely depends on Ronald Koeman.
To the joy of Culés, Riqui Puig returns to the squad after missing out for the game against Deportivo Alavés.
On the contrary, Ronald Araujo (knee) and Philippe Coutinho (hamstring) still miss out due to injury. The pair is expected to come back after the International Break.
Konrad de la Fuente, who has been called up for international duty with the US Men’s National Team, misses out due to a technical decision.
The full squad: Ter Stegen, Neto, Inaki Peña; Dest, Roberto, Pique, Lenglet, Alba, Firpo; Busquets, de Jong, Aleña, Pedri, Pjanic, Puig; Griezmann, Messi, Trincão, Dembele, Fati, Braithwaite
With two victories in two games, Barcelona sit on top of their group with six points. Additionally, they have scored seven goals in their opening two games, conceding just the one – the penalty against Ferencvaros.
Dynamo Kyiv, on the other hand, are in a tricky position, having mustered just a draw in their two games. Their goal difference of -2 is their saving grace, as they sit second to last over Ferenvaros. The outcome of the group seems imminent at this point, and there should be little to nothing displacing Barça from the top.
