Probable line-ups

Manager quotes

Ronald Koeman (Barcelona): "Our goal is to win every game. We want to top our group. We have a three-point advantage and we have a lot of chances to do it. Tomorrow we will line up a strong team because we want to win. With the injuries and how La Liga is going, we need a strong team, but also fresh."

Andrea Pirlo (Juventus): "I feel ready for the match against Barcelona, those were the easiest games to play in and I think they will be the same as a coach. Certain matches change your season in terms of confidence, we’re going there to win."

Prediction

SportsMole's Matt Law: Barcelona 1-1 Juventus

"Both managers are expected to select strong teams for this match despite the fact that the two sides are already through to the next round. Barca's Champions League form this season has been excellent, but we fancy Juve to secure a share of the spoils at Camp Nou on Tuesday night."

90min's James Merrills: Barcelona 3-2 Juventus

"With both teams likely to still field big-name players, we can expect an exciting game and a long-anticipated meeting between Messi and Ronaldo. Both sides are missing key players, meaning managers are forced to plug gaps with younger players. This bodes well for attackers as potential chinks in the armour could offer a way through on Tuesday."
