Possible Barcelona XI v Milan

Barcelona may use a three-man defence tonight as they look to dump Milan out of the Champions League.

The Spanish giants will have to attack at the Camp Nou given that they lost the first leg of their last 16 tie 2-0 at San Siro.

The Catalan-based Mundo Deportivo are placing Gerard Pique alongside Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba in a back-three, with Carles Puyol benched.

Dani Alves and Cristian Tello are set to be on either wing to support centre-forward Alexis Sanchez, with Lionel Messi deployed in a No 10 position just behind.

Xavi Hernandez should start in midfield alongside Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta.

Barcelona: Valdes; Mascherano, Pique, Alba; Xavi, Busquets, Iniesta; Messi; Alves, Alexis, Tello.

Substitutes: Pinto, Adriano, Puyol, Song, Thiago, Fabregas, Pedro, Villa.
