Barcelona's blockbuster clash with Bayern Munich is the pick of the midweek Champions League games - and it could be a hugely-significant fixture for Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian playmaker is searching for redemption on many levels as his former side comes calling to Camp Nou over nine months on from his last competitive appearance.

Can Philippe Coutinho make a success of his Barcelona spell?

At the time, he had just three goals to his name for the season and, in many ways, his last meaningful contribution with the ball at his feet came not for Barcelona, but for Bayern.

The memory of the 8-2 defeat lingers like a heavy cloud over Camp Nou and Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman was forced to address it in his pre-match press conference.

In a curious twist of fate, Coutinho enjoyed what was by far his most-productive season since leaving Liverpool with Barca's continental rivals rather than the Catalans themselves.

And while Coutinho still has a long way to go to justify his price tag, Koeman will look to the club's record signing to step up in their first Champions League game since Lionel Messi's departure.
