In this post tips and review of Barcelona - PSG.
1-3 away win for spanish team in the first leg.
BARCELONA - PSG
Although PSG has Ibra and Verratti back, the possibility to reverse the situation after the 1-3 in France seems almost impossible.
Seriously: has anybody ever recovered a 1-3 loss in the history of Champions League?
Yes it happened: Ajax did it in the Champions League quarterfinals of the season 1968/1969. After a 1-3 loss in the first round against Sporting Lisboa, they won in Portugal for 3-1( no extra time, in that period a third match was necessary, won by Ajax 3-0).
In this 2015 Barcelona is really playing a marvellous football, collecting wins after wins even the few times they don't impress.
Tonight Dani Alves and Iniesta are again available.
PSG has Ibra and Verratti back but Thiago Motta is still injured and Aurier is banned.
What kind of match we are going to watch?
PSG needs to score at least 3 goals without conceding a goal and that's the point:
considering the offensive mentality Blanc will ask his players and considering all the lack PSG defense often shows, not conceding a goal from Barcelona is really unconvincing.
We expect a match with a lot of goals, GOAL and OVER 2.5 should be fine.
We also like OVER 1.5 in the second half.
BARCELONA: ter Stegen; Alves, Piqué, Mascherano, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Neymar, Messi, Suarez.
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN: Sirigu; Van der Wiel, David Luiz, Marquinhos, Maxwell; Cabaye, Verratti, Matuidi; Lavezzi, Cavani, Ibrahimovic.
