Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona Preview: Team News
Mbappé made history in the first leg
He became the third player of all time to score a Champions League hat-trick against Barcelona after Faustino Asprilla and Andriy Shevchenko.
Barcelona will try to remember some of their magical nights in Europe in the past, especially the historic 6-1 comeback against the Parisian outfit back in 2017 (6-1), although this time the Catalan giants won’t have the support of their fans.
Barcelona will give it a go, PSG used to scoring at home
However, PSG, who lost last season’s final to Bayern Munich, head into the second leg having scored 22 times in a row on home soil in the Champions League.
Both teams go into the match in good form: PSG have won their last three matches, including a French Cup encounter against Stade Brestois last time out (0-3), while Barcelona have been victorious in their past four games.
The Parisians are second in Ligue 1, two points behind Lille, while the ‘Blaugranes’ are also second in LaLiga, with three points less than Atlético Madrid, who have one game in hand.
Neymar will miss the second leg
Mauricio Pochettino won’t be able to call upon Neymar, as PSG confirmed on Monday that the Brazilian star is still not ready to play.
Alessandro Florenzi seems recovered from a muscular problem, but Moise Kean, who tested positive for coronavirus, and Juan Bernat (ACL), won’t be available for the second leg.
Keylor Navas, Presnel Kimpembe, Marquinhos, and Layvin Kurzawa are expected to be the chosen ones in the defensive line against Barcelona.
Idrissa Gueye and Leandro Paredes will probably be in the starting lineup, alongside Ángel Di Maria. The Argentinian will partner with Marco Verratti, Mbappé, and Mauro Icardi in the attack.

Messi will try to lead the team towards an epic night
Ronald Koeman has to deal with some unavailable players too, as Gerard Piqué, Sergi Roberto, and Ronald Araújo will miss the second leg with injury issues. Ansu Fati and Philippe Coutinho are long-time absentees.
Junior Firpo could potentially replace Jordi Alba, who suffered a knock in his arm against Osasuna. Pedri, Lionel Messi, and Antoine Griezmann could be the three men up front.
Preview and Prediction for Paris Saint-Germain vs Barcelona
Paris Saint-Germain Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Keylor Navas; Layvin Kurzawa, Presnel Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Alessandro Florenzi; Idrissa Gueye, Leandro Paredes; Marco Verratti, Angel Di Maria, Kylian Mbappe; Mauro Icardi
Barcelona Predicted XI (3-5-2): Marc-Andre ter Stegen; Clement Lenglet, Samuel Umtiti, Oscar Mingueza; Jordi Alba, Sergino Dest, Sergio Busquets, Frenkie de Jong, Pedri; Ousmane Dembele, Lionel Messi
Barcelona have been on cloud nine this week after waves of optimism swept through the club following a positive election result and a series of important victories. The Catalans have a mountain to climb in France on Wednesday and are likely to adopt an aggressive approach to this encounter.
Paris Saint-Germain have four away goals in this fixture and hold all the cards ahead of this week's game. Barcelona are perfectly capable of winning this match but are unlikely to overcome what has become a massive first-leg deficit.
Head-to-head: This will be their 13th meeting in the Champions League, with Barcelona leading 5-4 in the head-to-head record.
Paris Saint-Germain: Navas; Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Kurzawa; Gueye, Paredes; Di Maria, Verratti, Mbappe; Icardi.
Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Lenglet, Umtiti; Dest, De Jong, Busquets, Alba; Pedri; Messi, Griezmann.
Prediction: Paris Saint-Germain 2-3 Barcelona
Betting Odds and Analysis

It goes without saying that Barcelona is firmly up against it against its French counterpart. Surely, there has to be a glimmer of hope surrounding the La Liga juggernaut, knowing what the club pulled off four years ago.
However, these are different versions of these global powers and PSG is simply too good to let history repeat itself this time around.
For that reason, I will back PSG via a Draw No Bet play at -125 odds on DraftKings as my top pick. The Parisians created too many problems in Barcelona’s defensive third of the pitch last time, and with the match likely to be wide open, I fully expect their counterattack to wreak havoc.
If you’re looking for a little something extra on the prop side, play Mbappé to score anytime at close to even-money odds. There isn’t a ton of value on this play, but the standout has been in brilliant form as of late.
Picks: PSG — Draw No Bet (-125); Kylian Mbappé To Score Anytime — Yes (+107)
