One of the three players that survived the crash, Alan Ruschel, made his first appearance on the soccer field on Monday at Camp Nou.

There were a few isolated songs against the Brazilian and his new club in the first half but the vast majority of the fans who turned up on a hot Barcelona night were interested in seeing how their side would perform without one of their key players.

The crash happened as Chapecoense were travelling to face Colombian side Atletico Nacional in the final of the Copa Sudamericana. He received a standing ovation from the crowd, which he returned by applauding with his hands held high as he slowly walked to the dugout.

Left back Ruschel survived, along with defender Neto, while goalkeeper Jakson Follmann had part of his leg amputated.

Barcelona went on to win the match, 5-0. It will be a very special day for everyone that was involved'. As he walked off, the Nou Camp stood and applauded the 27-year-old, as Luis Suarez and a number of other players clapped his departure. It will be an opportunity for Barcelona, Chapecoense and the football world in general to pay tribute to the fallen heroes who were on their way to play the most important game of the club's history. Barcelona have already won Juventus, Manchester United and Real Madrid in the pre-season and so no need stating the favorites for this game...even though anything could happen.
