UEFA Champions League | Barcelona VS Paris St-Germain; Wednesday, 17 April at 03:00 GMT +8

Barcelona are the favorites to qualify for the UCL semi-finals after a 3:2 win in Paris last week. With a one-goal advantage, they are confident of securing their place in the final four. PSG, on the other hand, has won eight of their last nine away matches across all competitions. They have won each of their last three fixtures on their travels, including a 6:2 win at Montpellier last month. PSG also claimed their place in the UCL quarter finals with a 2:1 road win against Real Sociedad in San Sebastian last month. Both teams have posted consistent numbers in the goal markets in this competition, and it is expected that Barcelona will get on the front foot in the second leg. Barcelona has seen both outcomes in their last three UCL games at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys, while PSG has seen both outcomes in eight of their last 11 away road games in the Champions League.

Barcelona manager Xavi Hernández will not have Alejandro Balde and Gavi available for the upcoming game against Manchester City. Suspended players Sergi Roberto and Andreas Christensen are also suspended. Barça may use a 4-3-3 system.

PSG boss Luis Enrique faces limited availability, with Sergio Rico and Presnel Kimpembe missing. Les Rouge-et-Bleu may opt for a 4-3-1-2 system with Gianluigi Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos, Lucas Beraldo, Nuno Mendes, Warren Zaïre-Emery, Fabian Ruiz, Vítinha, Kang-in Lee, Ousmane Dembélé, and Kylian Mbappe.
