Line-ups: Roma vs Barcelona

Radja Nainggolan returns for Roma ahead of tonight’s Champions League Quarter-Final second-leg against Barcelona.

The first-leg was disappointing for the Giallorossi as they were defeated 4-1 at the Camp Nou but the team from the Italian Capital believe that they can do the unthinkable and make a comeback.

Nainggolan was injured for last week’s first-leg and he returns to the midfield and the Belgian International will play in a more advanced role as a trequartista behind the strike partnership of Edin Džeko and Patrik Schick.

Roma are playing with a back three as they attempt to go all-out and progress through to the Champions League Semi-Final.

Moving over to the Catalan giants Sergio Busquets starts despite struggling with a muscular issue.

Andres Iniesta and Ivan Rakitic also play in the Blaugrana midfield behind Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

Roma starting line-up: Alisson; Manolas, Fazio, Juan Jesus; Florenzi, Strootman, De Rossi, Kolarov; Nainggolan; Schick, Dzeko

Roma bench: Skorupski, Bruno Peres, El Shaarawy, Pellegrini, Gonalons, Gerson, Under

Barcelona starting line-up: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Pique, Umtiti, Jordi Alba; Sergi Roberto, Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Messi, Suarez

Barcelona bench: Cillessen, Vermaelen, Paulinho, Andre Gomes, Denis Suarez, Dembele, Paco Alcacer
