Barcelona coach, Ernesto Valvede, has left out Kevin-Prince Boateng from the Barcelona squad expected to play Manchester United in the return leg of the Champions League at the Camp Nou on Tuesday.

Boateng was among the Valvede’s squad that travelled to the Old Trafford for the first leg although he wasn’t part of the final squad for the game.

The Ghana international would have to watch the game from the stands again just three days after his unimpressive showing against bottom-placed Huesca in the Spanish La Liga

The Blaugranas go into this game with 1-0 advantage over Manchester United and would be expecting to run over the Old Trafford club in order to secure a semifinal berth.
