PSG are yet to win European football’s elite club competition after losing in the final last season – and have previously been dumped out by Barca.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has been handed one of the trickiest Champions League fixtures of the last-16 stage, with PSG having lost 6-1 at the Nou Camp the last time they played here. 

The visitors can take confidence from the fact they have won four games on the bounce heading into this encounter, which includes three clean sheets.

And Barca, meanwhile, have suffered a blip this February with the recent loss to Sevilla in the Copa del Rey coming just six days ago.

Barcelona v PSG team news

Barcelona: Gerard Pique is expected to return to the heart of Barca’s defence after recovering from a knee injury.

However, Ronald Araujo is out with an ankle problem. Lionel Messi will start up front with Antoine Griezmann alongside him and Ousmane Dembele likely to pitch up on the other flank.

PSG: Pochettino cannot call upon Neymar to feature against his former club due to a thigh injury, while ex-Real Madrid gem Angel Di Maria is ruled out too.

PSG hope to have Marco Verratti back in the centre of midfield. Mauro Icardi will lead the line, with Kylian Mbappe in his usual position on the left flank.

Our prediction: Barcelona v PSG

PSG are certainly blunted without Neymar leading the attack but Pochettino will expect the likes of Icardi and Mbappe to threaten their hosts here, especially if Barca’s defence creaks under the strain of injuries.

Messi and Griezmann will need Miralem Pjanic and Riqui Puig to control the midfield and feed balls forward if Barca are to get through a solid PSG line.

This game promises goals but the two teams won’t risk everything for a win, with half an eye on the second leg.

Our prediction: Barcelona 2-2 PSG (11/1 at bet365)
