The UEFA Champions League returns with another set of fixtures this week as Barcelona travel to Hungary to take on Ferencvaros at the Puskas Arena on Wednesday. Barcelona have named a second-string squad and will want to make a statement in this game.
Ferencvaros have endured a difficult UEFA Champions League campaign and will face competition from Dynamo Kyiv to secure a place in the Europa League. The Hungarian giants did trouble Juventus last week and will want to trouble the Catalan outfit in their own backyard.
Barcelona, on the other hand, are currently on top of their group and will be in no mood to relent this week. The Catalans have been a resurgent force in the recent past and have registered two 4-0 victories on the trot under Ronald Koeman.

Ferencvaros have a fully-fit squad ahead of this fixture and will need to dig deep into their resource pool to pull off a positive result in this fixture. The Hungarian side gave Juventus several problems last week and are unlikely to make drastic changes to their starting combination.

With Marc-Andre ter Stegen rested for this game, Neto is likely to be given his opportunity for Barcelona. Gerard Pique, Sergi Roberto, Ansu Fati, and Ronald Araujo are currently injured and will play no part against Ferencvaros.
With Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho receiving a well-deserved rest, the likes of Pedri and Riqui Puig will have to shoulder the creative burden for the team. Clement Lenglet has been included in the squad despite his niggle against Osasuna over the weekend.
