Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST. The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport Extra.


Borussia Monchengladbach's Champions League campaign got off to a rocky start, as they went down 4-0 against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. The Bundesliga side have won three of their seven home matches against Spanish opponents in European competition.

Andre Schubert has no fresh injury concerns. Alvaro Dominguez (back), Mamadou Doucoure (fitness), Tobias Strobl (thigh) and Josip Drmic (knee) all remain sidelined.

Barcelona began their Champions League campaign with a 7-0 thrashing of Celtic at Camp Nou. The Catalan giants have only won one of their last six matches against Bundesliga opponents in Germany.

Lionel Messi (groin) and Samuel Umtiti (knee) are both absent through injury for the visitors.

What managers say

Andre Schubert: "We played against some very strong teams last season in Manchester City and Juventus, but Barcelona are on another level. This is why we've tried so hard to get back into the group stage of the competition. We need to produce an exceptional performance tomorrow. You need to put in an exceptional performance to cause a team like Barcelona problems. Let's remember, it's not a matter of life and death, it's just another game of football. We have a plan. A lot will depend on how well we keep hold of the ball - when we get hold of it."

Luis Enrique: "Borussia are a difficult side and we will have to be well organised because they press very high up the pitch. They are dangerous without the ball and they know what to do when they have it. They have quick, quality players in attack, and they score a lot of goals even though they have also conceded a few. We have to counteract their strengths because if we don't, we'll struggle."
