Barcelona duo of Ivan Rakitic and Sergi Roberto have both been passed fit for their Champions League tie against Manchester United on Tuesday.

Rakitic and Roberto were among the absentees as a much-changed Barca side drew 0-0 at Huesca in LaLiga action at the weekend.

However, the duo has been included in Ernesto Valverde's squad for the second leg of the quarter-final, which will be played at Camp Nou.

Captain Lionel Messi is selected despite being left with a bloody nose and a swollen eye following a heavy challenge from Chris Smalling during the first leg at Old Trafford last week.

United also received a pre-match fitness boost with former Barca forward Alexis Sanchez and midfielder Nemanja Matic both named in their squad for the game.

Left Back

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a decision to make at left-back - regular selection Luke Shaw, whose own goal splits the sides after the first leg, is suspended. Ashley Young, Diogo Dalot and Marcos Rojo are his other option at the left back position.
