PSG vs Barcelona: Predictions
PSG will be looking to avoid another Champions League nightmare against Barcelona with the French side all-but in the quarter-finals of the competition. Barcelona came back from a 4-0 first-leg defeat against PSG in 2017 to beat the Parisians 6-1 in the second leg to progress into the Champions League quarter-finals.
Pochettino’s side ran riot in the Nou Camp just a few weeks ago, despite going behind early on, wonder kid Kylian Mbappe stole the show with a stunning hat trick which saw PSG put one foot into the next round. Barça took the lead early on against the run of play, but the quality of Pochettino’s side prevailed.
Barcelona showed they are still capable of a comeback after they came back from a 2-0 aggregate deficit to Sevilla during the week with a 3-0 win on the night at the Nou Camp which saw Ronald Koeman’s side advance into the Copa del Rey final.
Both sides kept clean sheets on the weekend, PSG winning 3-0 against Brest in the French Cup and Barcelona beating Osasuna 2-0 in La Liga to maintain their place in second spot.
