In what is arguably the biggest encounter on the cards, La Liga giants Barcelona will lock horns with French champions PSG at Camp Nou in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg tonight (Tuesday).
Barcelona finished second in their Champions’ League group despite accruing the same points as leaders Juventus, owing to a poor head-to-head record.
After a rough start to the season, the Catalans have gotten themselves on the right track in recent weeks under Ronald Koeman, having lost just one of their last eight games in all competition, thrashing Alaves 5-1 last time out.
PSG, meanwhile, ended up as leaders in a difficult Group H that also had the likes of RB Leipzig and Manchester United in the Champions League.
Under the tutelage of new manager Mauricio Pochettino, who took over the reins last month, Les Parisiens have lost just one out of ten games (W8 D1), most recently beating OGC Nice 2-1 in Ligue 1.
Barcelona Starting XI (4-3-3): Stegen, Dest, Umtiti, Lenglet, Alba, Jong, Busquets, Lopez, Dembele, Messi, Griezmann
PSG Starting XI (4-3-3): Navas, Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Kurzawa, Gueye, Verratti, Paredes, Kean, Icardi, Lottin
Kick off is at 21:00 (GMT +1).
