Barcelona vs PSG Prediction
The Camp Nou hosts the standout fixture of the Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday as PSG visit Barcelona for the first leg and, considering there have been 32 goals scored in the previous eight meetings between these sides, the neutrals could be in for a treat.
Barca returned to winning ways in emphatic fashion at the weekend as they demolished Alaves 5-1 to make it seven wins from their last eight. As has so often been the case over the past 15 years it was Lionel Messi driving his team forward.
PSG Neymar’s absence will be a big blow for the visitors though and PSG’s record against Barca won’t provide much confidence. They have lost four of their last five meetings, so backing a Barcelona win and both teams to score looks good value.
