Frenkie De Jong

The Dutch international returned from injury before the conclusion of La Liga 2019-20 and was impressive in the win over Napoli. De Jong’s role alongside Sergio Busquests will be important in the middle of the park and he will be in charge of linking Barcelona midfield with their front three.

Thiago Alcantara

Thiago will be important in the Bayern Munich controlling the game’s tempo and keeping his side’s defence secure for as long as possible.
