PSG vs Barcelona Prediction
PSG will try to reclaim their glory back from the 2017 defeat in the second leg of the tournament. In the meantime, Barcelona is far from a title this season other than the Copa del Ray.
Barcelona famously overturned a 4-0 Last 16 first-leg deficit against PSG in 2017, though their chances of repeating that miraculous comeback feel incredibly slim this time around.
Barcelona’s defensive solidity is all well and good, but unless the visitors go for goals in this game, they will exit the Champions League with a whimper. Such a gung-ho approach could prove to be wholly effective or completely fatal against an in-form PSG and their rampageous attackers, who will have a glint in their eyes as they take on an injury-hit Blaugrana.
