Barcelona Vs. BATE Borisov, 2011 UEFA Champions League: Lineups

Ahead of El Clasico, Barcelona are surprisingly sitting out all of their first team players. Maxwell, Thiago Alcantara, Pedro and Isaac Cuenca are the only players in their starting XI who have either started league games this year or appear in their first XI on a regular basis. This means we'll get a look at players such as Thiago's little brother Rafinha Alcantara and Mexican international Jonathan dos Santos. The three defenders other than Maxwell will soon be coming to a mid-table Premier League team near you.

Barcelona Lineup (4-3-3): Pinto; Montoya, Bartra, Fontàs, Maxwell; Dos Santos, Thiago Alcantara, Sergi Roberto; Rafinha Alcantara, Cuenca, Pedro

BATE Borisov Lineup (4-4-2): Gutor; Yurevich, Bordachev, Filipenko, Simic; Likhtarovich, Kontsevoi, Volodko, Renan Bressan; Pavlov, Baga

Kickoff is at 2:45 pm ET, 7:45 pm GMT and 8:45 pm local.
