What is the team news?
Barcelona could welcome back the two-time Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas. The Spain star has not played for Barcelona since last season’s Champions League final defeat to Lyon after suffering an ACL injury on the eve of last summer’s Euros, but returned to training ahead of the second leg. England star Lucy Bronze is out for two weeks, however, after hurting her knee in the first leg at Stamford Bridge and undergoing minor surgery.
Chelsea lined up with a back three in the first leg in a formation switch that saw Lauren James drop to the bench, but the Blues will need to be bolder as they look to overturn Barcelona’s lead. Emma Hayes is without centre-backs Millie Bright and Kadeisha Buchanan, as well as England’s Fran Kirby, while Pernille Harder may again start on the bench as she works to regain full match fitness.
