The Champions League is back with one of the most anticipated knockouts of the round of 16. Reunion between Barça and PSG at Camp Nou, four years after the comeback. Discover the probable lineups of the teams.
After a two-month break, the Champions League anthem will sound again in the biggest European stadiums, starting with the Camp Nou on Tuesday evening.
Catalans and Parisians meet for the first time since 2017 for a highly anticipated round of 16, and already launched behind the scenes for several weeks by the leaders and supporters of the two clubs.
Ronald Koeman’s Barça is finally in good shape after a complicated start to the season, and receives PSG at home after a great victory against Alavés this weekend.
The good news for the Catalans is the return of Gérard Piqué, absent since November due to an injury. However, Ronald Araujo, Ansu Fati or Sergi Roberto will not be available.
PSG were a little less calm than Barça this weekend against Nice but also won, and made the trip to Barcelona without its superstar Neymar Junior. Injured last week, the Brazilian will not be able to participate in this great meeting against his former team.
If Mauricio Pochettino will not be able to count on Ángel di María either, Marco Verratti is back in the Paris squad after missing the last matches due to injury.
Here are the probable lineups of the two teams:
Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Dest, Mingueza, Lenglet (or Piqué), Jordi Alba; De Jong, Busquets, Pedri; Griezmann, Messi (cap.), Dembélé
Paris Saint-Germain: Keylor Navas; Florenzi, Marquinhos (cap.), Kimpembe, Kurzawa; Paredes, Gueye, Verratti; Mbappé, Icardi, Sarabia
Stadium: Camp Nou
Time: 9:00 p.m. (GMT + 1)
