Betting prediction: Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 Barcelona

Baring lightning striking twice in the same competition with the same sides pitted against each other, Paris Saint-Germain are well and truly in the driving seat  after their resounding 4-1 first-leg win in Barcelona. Barca have to come to the French capital and look for goals as soon as possible, which perfectly suits the likes of Kylian Mbappé to rip them apart on the counter. PSG to win on the night again for me, and could do it by multiple goals.

Paris Saint-Germain vs Barcelona: Recommended bets

First to Score: Kylian Mbappé

It’s difficult to pick out a first goal-scorer, especially in a side like PSG’s where the likes of Mauro Icardi, Neymar, and Angel Di María also exist, but Kylian Mbappe has created a sneaky habit of being brilliant in knockout stages of competitions. His performance in the first-leg in Barcelona was sublime, and against a Barca outfit that are desperate to come out of the blocks and grab goals, his pace and sheer brilliance could see PSG take the lead early on if Barca are not careful.

 

Result/Both Teams to Score: PSG – Yes

A clean sheet just does not seem on here with these two. As stated above, Barca need goals and with the firepower they have, they certainly will find them. But in that same light, PSG will do as well given their own considerable assets in the final third.

Paris Saint-Germain vs Barcelona: Match preview

Paris Saint-Germain are not infallible. Despite their perceived stature as a big European club with ambitions to win the Champions League, PSG still have quite a lot to prove. Reaching the final last season and losing to the juggernaut that is Bayern Munich is hardly a push that should be viewed as negative. It’s one more step in the right direction for a club and for an ownership group that feels that is precisely where they belong.

But the truth is their current domestic situation could shed some light on a club that maybe is not as far along as last season – or a considerable handful of them on the domestic level – seemed to suggest. Having lost on six occasions this term and sitting in second behind a Lille outfit that has only tasted defeat twice, it could be postulated that PSG being in control of this time is more indicative of the struggles going on at Barcelona.

That is not to take anything away from Mauricio Pochettino, a man who has come in and won 80% (12-1-2) of the matches he has presided over since finally getting back into management after his time at Tottenham. According to the man himself, PSG will “fight to the death” to win the Champions League. Thus far, they are very much on the right track in doing just that after pouncing on a wounded Barcelona while topping a tricky group which included RB Leipzig and Manchester United though losing on two occasions in the process.

All that matters going into the second leg is avoiding a repeat of 2017 when the Parisians blew a 4-0 first-leg lead and ended up crashing out of the competition and the hands of Barca. They may not be blitzing Ligue 1 and they are far from perfect in Europe, and last seasons run to the final does not make them an automatic favourite for a repeat, but a statement on Tuesday would go a long way to solidify their argument that they are quickly becoming European elite.

Anything less than a reversal of fortunes is unacceptable for Barcelona

Much of the talk in Barcelona at current will undoubtedly revolve around Joan Laporte returning to the club as president. How the club moves forward under the Barcelona-native and career lawyer will be key. How will Ronald Koeman be replaced if the club move on from the Dutch icon? Will he turn to former club-great Xavi to take up the position on the touchline? How will he steer the club through turbulent financial straights? These are all questions that need answering, but none more than wondering if Lionel Messi will remain in Catalonia or not.

Despite the uncertain times at one of the world’s historic footballing institutions, the notion that they could crash out of the Champions League at the first hurdle in the knockout stage is unthinkable. The five-time winner of Europe’s premier club competition have not reached the final since 2014-15 when they beat Italian giants Juventus 3-1 at the Olympiastadion in Berlin. Now in the sixth season since the last time they reached the last leg of the competition, Barca – like PSG – are not topping their respective domestic league and find themselves having to convince Messi to remain in a club that could very much be on somewhat of a downturn by comparison to some other clubs.

It’s important to note that had it not been for the Blaugrana losing 3-0 at home to Juventus on matchday six of the group stage, the script to have been completely rewritten in Europe. But perhaps that loss to La Vecchia Signora should have been a warning sign along the side of the road that it could be an early exit from the competition. But there is some hope after they reversed their 2-0 first-leg defeat against Sevilla to win the second leg 3-0 and reach the final of the Copa del Rey. Further hope rests in the fact that they have reversed their fortunes against PSG before, and the fact that they still have one of the greatest footballers in history means that Barca are never truly out of it.

Paris Saint-Germain team news vs Barcelona

Mauricio Pochettino will certainly be without the services of both Juan Bernat and Moise Kean when PSG plays host to Barcelona.

The Argentine headmaster is also likely to be without Neymar who is not expected to be fit in time to take part against his old club.

Angel Di María is back for the Parisians, and Alessandro Florenzi is also expected to be ready and available.

Barcelona team news vs Paris Saint-Germain

Ronald Koeman is without five first-team players when the Catalan outfit looks to invade France. Ansu Fati, Philippe Coutinho, Sergi Roberto, Ronald Araujo, and Gerard Piqué will all be unavailable for selection.

There is uncertainty over Jordi Alba a swell after he came off injured against Osasuna at the weekend, but Barca is hopeful he will be fit in time.
