How Barcelona lineup against Bayern tonight

The Polish striker has been in sensational form for Barcelona sice arriving in the summer, scoring a hat-trick last week in his first European match for the club as Xavi’s side cruised to a 5-1 win over Viktoria Plzen.

While there was no doubt over who would be leading the line, there was a decision for Xavi to make in wide areas. Ousmane Dembele has been similarly impressive starts, while the Barcelona boss has opted for Raphinha over Ansu Fati.

Marcos Alonso and Hector Bellerin have both travelled to Munich, after making their debuts over the weekend against Cadiz, and the former Chelsea man gets a surprise start at the Allianz Arena.

Jules Kounde continues at right-back, so Bellerin has to settle for a place on the bench alongside Alejandro Balde and Jordi Alba.

There are plenty of options in the centre of defence for Xavi too. Ronald Araujo was a certain starter, and it’s Andreas Christensen who partners him at the back with Eric Garcia on the bench.

Starting XI: Ter Stegen, Kounde, Araujo, Christensen, Alonso, Busquets, Pedri, Gavi, Raphinha, Lewandowski, Dembele

Subs: Bellerin, Pique, Fati, Torres, Memphis, Alba, Kessie, De Jong, Garcia, Pena, Balde, Tenas
