Team news

Galatasaray were missing several players from the first leg and their injury situation is not set to improve. It means the hosts are set to be without Arda Turan but Ryan Babel is expected to have shaken off a knock in time to feature.

Barcelona could make changes ahead of El Clasico and it is unlikely the returning Gerard Pique will be risked. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did not start the first leg as Xavi made changes but is expected to be recalled here.
