Barcelona – PSG: a return and a surprise announced in Luis Enrique’s lineup

FC Barcelona hosts PSG this Tuesday April 16 in the quarter-final second leg of the Champions League. Paris has its back against the wall after its defeat in the first leg (2-3).

FC Barcelona made a big blow in the first leg against PSG. The victory at the Parc des Princes (3-2) puts the Blaugranas on the right track before hosting the Parisians. The Barcelonans have a 76.5% chance of qualifying according to Opta's AI and therefore of reaching the last four of the Champions League for the first time in five years. In the Championship this weekend, Xavi's men won 1-0 against the 18th. "We have a war to fight on Tuesday. We want to do something big. This match comes when we are in our best form this season," Xavi said before the match.

Opposite PSG had more time to prepare for this quarter-final return because the Professional Football League had postponed the Ligue 1 match against Lorient. The Parisians will have to snatch a one-goal victory to secure an extension and two goals to be able to return to the semi-finals of the Champions League four years later. History is not on the side of the capital club as Paris lost seven times when they lost in the first leg of a European knockout encounter. "I have no doubt that we can qualify. Everyone is speculating, but for example we haven't lost away in the Championship. We have six days to prepare. Away goals no longer count in doubles, this allows the confrontation to remain open,” declared Luis Enrique after the setback in the first leg.

The Barcelona – PSG match will start at 9 p.m. this Tuesday. It will take place at the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium in Barcelona.

Two channels will broadcast this meeting between Barcelona and PSG. Canal Foot and RMC Sport 1 have the broadcasting rights. Romanian referee István Kovács will be on the whistle.

Two streaming broadcasts will be available to follow this Barcelona - PSG. Indeed, MyCanal and RMCSport.TV will also broadcast the match. You must have a subscription to be able to access the match.

Xavi will not be able to count on several players for this return match against PSG. He will be without Sergi Roberto and Andreas Christensen who are suspended. Gavi and Baldé are still injured. The Blaugrana's probable XI: Ter Stegen - Koundé, Araujo, Cubarsi, Cancelo - Gündogan, De Jong, Pedri - Yamal, Lewandowski, Raphinha.

It is always quite difficult to read Luis Enrique's compositions before it is revealed. The Parisian coach could still surprise with the possible presence of Ugarte in midfield. Hakimi, back from suspension, should start. PSG's probable XI: Donnarumma - Hakimi, Marquinhos, Hernandez, Nuno Mendes - Zaire-Emery, Vitinha, Ugarte - Dembélé, Mbappé, Barcola.
