class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The hosts were clearly superior in the Champions League last-16 first leg, racking up a 4-1 win, and our tipster is backing them to ease through
Barcelona head to the Parc des Princes on Wednesday evening with the seemingly impossible task of turning around their Champions League last-16 tie against Paris Saint-Germain.
Ronald Koeman’s men were beaten 4-1 at Camp Nou in the first leg three weeks ago thanks to a hat-trick from Kylian Mbappe, and the La Liga side know they must score at least four times to stand any chance of progressing.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Barcelona Latest Odds
Barca come into the game in strong form domestically, having reached the final of the Copa del Rey following a dramatic semi-final comeback against Sevilla as well as cutting the gap on La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid to three points.
However, they remain outsiders to win in Paris, priced at 19/10 (2.90) with bet365 while PSG can be backed at 11/10 (2.10) and the draw at 16/5 (4.20).
Paris Saint-Germain vs Barcelona Team News
PSG are waiting on the fitness of Neymar, who has not featured since the start of February but could be back to face his former side. Moise Kean is sidelined with coronavirus but Alessandro Florenzi should return from injury.
Philippe Coutinho, Sergi Roberto and Gerard Pique are all out for Barca while Ronald Araujo is a major doubt.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Barcelona Preview
Despite falling behinf Spain, Mauricio Pochettino’s side were the much better team in the first leg and Kylian Mbappe produced a performance that was virtually unstoppable.
Since his hat-trick in that game, the French international has continued his strong scoring run with four goals in PSG’s last three matches and against a depleted Barcelona defence, there is every chance he can put in another memorable showing.
The Catalans, for their part, have failed to win their last three away games in the knockout stages – against Napoli, Liverpool, and Lyon, respectively – and given the context of the tie, there is very little chance of them producing a historic result.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Barcelona Tips and Predictions
Backing PSG at odds-against to win looks like a terrific option and the price of 11/10 (2.10) should provide plenty of interest, while combining this selection with over 2.5 goals sees the odds rise to 17/10 (2.70).
