Team news:

Barca trail 4-0 from last week's first leg in Germany and need to score at least four goals if they are to progress to the Champions League final at Wembley Stadium later this month.

Lionel Messi (hamstring) is close to full fitness and will start, while Adriano, who returns from suspension, could start at left-back as Jordi Alba is banned after his yellow card in the first leg.

Barcelona are without midfielder Sergio Busquets (groin), so Alex Song could deputise in midweek.

Eric Abidal (calf) is also ruled out.

Bayern travel to Camp Nou with a slight doubt over defender Dante (illness).

Mario Mandzukic returns from suspension for the visitors, who coach Jupp Heynckes has promised will be at full-strength after ten of his senior players were rested at the weekend.

What they've said ahead of kick-off:

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique: "We know what [Lionel] Messi means. He is the best in the world and to have him in the team is the best news.

"We need everyone, especially Messi. I do not want us to commit mistakes because we have enough work as it is to play a good match and be better than the opponent.

"We believe we will turn this around 100%. We need to score a goal as soon as possible to get more and more confident."

Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes: "The players know they must play in a disciplined manner, which means no gestures, no unnecessary fouls and not to be provoked.

"We need the same composure, strong running and tactical nous. Barcelona are the best team in the world. We know that they have already achieved huge results at home. When your pride is hurt you'll try anything, so we need a top performance."

Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich stats:

- This is the third time in the last four seasons that Bayern Munich have reached the last four of the Champions League.

- Barcelona, who are in the Champions League semi-finals for the sixth consecutive season, have won only one of their last six Champions League games (drawing three and losing two).

- Bayern lead 4-0 from the first leg and no team has ever overturned a 4-0 deficit after the first leg of a Champions League knockout game.

- Barcelona's 4-0 defeat in Munich last week was their heaviest in a Champions League game since they were beaten 4-0 by Dinamo Kiev back in November 1997.

- If Bayern qualify for the final, it will be the third time they have reached the final of the Champions League in the last four seasons.

- Barcelona have won just one of their seven competitive encounters with Bayern Munich, drawing two and losing four.

- But Barcelona are unbeaten in their last 21 Champions League games at Camp Nou, with 16 wins and five draws.

- And Barca's last three home games in the Champions League knockout stages against German sides have all resulted in the Catalans winning by at least four clear goals (4-0 vs. Bayern Munich in April 2009, 4-0 vs. Stuttgart in March 2010 and 7-1 vs. Bayer Leverkusen in March 2012.
