As for PSG, the French giants had a lot of moments in the first leg but ultimately failed to control the match against Barcelona.

The Ligue 1 champions do not have a great record in the Champions League and will need Kylian Mbappe to turn up if they are to advance to the semi-finals.

The Spanish coach’s team had no match at the weekend and has made three changes from their defeat in Paris with Lucas Berlado, Lee Kang-in and Marco Asensio coming out for Achraf Hakimi, Warren Zaire-Emery and Bradley Barcola.
