Neymar makes Champions League bow for Barcelona
Barcelona: Brazilian international Neymar will make his first ever Champions League appearance after being named in Barcelona`s starting line-up for their Group H opener at home to Ajax.
Neymar will once again team up with Lionel Messi having provided an assist for the Argentine in each of Barca`s last two league games, whilst Alexis Sanchez maintains his place on the right to make up the front three.
Continuing coach Gerardo Martino`s policy of rotating his stars, Xavi Hernandez starts on the bench with his place being taken by Cesc Fabregas in midfield.
For the Dutch champions, captain Siem de Jong makes his first start since recovering from a collapsed lung for the visitors.
And on-loan Barca forward Bojan Krkic also starts for Ajax against his parent club.
