Benfica vs Barcelona | Team News:
Benfica defender Lucas Verissimo is back from a European ban this week. He might displace fellow Brazilian Morato in the hosts’ defence alongside Nicolas Otamendi and Jan Vertonghen. Adel Taarabt is available for Champions League fixtures amid a lengthy domestic suspension. While Yaremchuk is under no pressure for a start. Haris Seferovic is expected to remain out until after the international break.
Barcelona continues to cope without long-term injury victims Sergio Aguero, Ousmane Dembele and Martin Braithwaite. While Jordi Alba is also likely to miss out after coming off against Bayern, but Ansu Fati made his long-awaited comeback against Levante. Frenkie de Jong returns from a domestic ban and will displace Gavi or Nico Gonzalez in the visitors’ midfield. Meanwhile, Sergino Dest will continue at left-back if Alba and Balde are both ruled out.

Vlachodimos; Verissimo, Otamendi, Vertonghen; Pizzi, Weigl, Mario, Grimaldo; Silva, Yaremchuk, Nunez
Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Pique, Araujo, Dest; F. de Jong, Busquets, Pedri; Coutinho, L. de Jong, Depay
