Johan Neeskens will take charge of Barcelona for tonight's Champions League tie with Stuttgart.

The Dutchman will replace coach Frank Rijkaard, who is suspended for the match after being sent-off in Barca's last European tie at Olympique Lyon.

Neeskens will not be in communication with Rijkaard for the entire 90 minutes: "I don't think it'll be a friendly encounter. German teams don't do friendlies. I hope we can play an attractive style of game."
