Champions League: PSG vs Barcelona

PSG vs Barcelona Betting Tip and Predictions. In the one of the most interesting matches in the 1/8 finals of the UEFA Champions League, PSG host FC Barcelona at Parc des Princes. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between PSG vs Barcelona.

PSG didn’t have luck at draw, so they will face FC Barcelona in the first match in the 1/8 finals of the Champions League. Home side is not too strong as they used to be because some important players left the team such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic who moved in Manchester United and David Luiz who came back at Stamford Bridge. PSG dominated in the French Ligue 1 for years. They are standing at the second position behind Monaco, but despite that fact they are still one of the main candidates for the title. In this moment they are focused on the match against Barcelona and they will be fully motivated to beat them upfront their supporters.

“The squad is very motivated. We don’t feel inferior to anyone.” – said Unai Emery, PSG coach.

Home team is unbeaten in the last 12 games in all competitions, while at home they are still undefeated this season. Two years ago, PSG met FC Barcelona in the Quarter-finals of the same competition and Barca beat them in both matches and went through in the semis. Home side know that will be very hard for them to reach the next stage of Champions League, but they have to do their best, especially at home, in order to make positive result.

Barcelona play very good this season in Champions League and they are one of the main candidates to win this competition. The match against PSG won’t be easy for them, but they are much stronger and favorites to reach the Quarter-finals. However, they will have to prove it on the pitch. In the last LaLiga match they smashed Alaves 0-6 and showed that they are in the great form and will be fully motivated to make good result in Paris. Last season, when home side was much stronger, Barcelona didn’t have many problems to eliminated, so now they are even bigger favorites. Visitors know that PSG have to play attacking upfront their supporters, so Barcelona have to play better in the defence. The attacking trio, Messi, Suarez and Neymar, are all playing amazing this season, so home side will have many problems in order to stop them.
