Camp Nou: Home of Barcelona(credit: Wikipedia
Barcelona star Lionel Messi is a major doubt for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie with Shakhtar Donetsk.
Messi was left on the bench for the weekend win over Villarreal after struggling to overcome a leg injury, and the Argentinian ace could have to settle for a substitutes role once again if he cannot prove his fitness to boss Pep Guardiola.
Carles Puyol has returned to training following a knee problem but many not feature, while Maxwell is doubtful with a thigh injury that kept him out at the weekend.
Defender Eric Abidal remains on the Camp Nou sidelines after having surgery to remove a liver tumour last month.
Meanwhile, Shakhtar Donetsk boss Mircea Lucescu is without the services of Olexandr Kucher (knee) so he will be hoping former Barca man Dmytro Chygrynskiy will overcome an ankle to start.
And Donetsk are boosted by the return of playmaker Fernandinho from a broken leg that has kept him on the sidelines for several months.
