Barcelona vs Paris Saint Germain Match Prediction

By Dean Carr

Barcelona welcome Paris Saint-Germain to the Nou Camp on 08/03/17 as the home team look to complete an extraordinary turnaround in the Champions League. Barcelona were in a rampant mood Saturday, beating Celta Vigo 5-0 in La Liga. PSG kept the pressure on leaders Monaco in Ligue 1 when they beat Nancy 1-0 at the weekend. Read on for a full match preview complete with betting tips and predictions.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Barcelona have been scoring goals for fun in recent weeks, netting eleven goals in their last two games. If anyone can pull of such a miracle, Barcelona would certainly be up there, Although I expect them to win the game, I can’t see them overturning such a significant gap here.

Barcelona win - 4/9

Barcelona -1 handicap - 11/10

Barcelona to win by two goals - 7/2

Barcelona Preview

Barcelona will be looking to replicate the weekend’s scoreline when they face PSG on Wednesday evening after destroying Celta Vigo 5-0 at the weekend. Lionel Messi opened the scoring for Barca inside twenty-four minutes, before Neymar’s audacious chip doubled their lead going into half-time. A seven minute second-half spell then saw Ivan Rakitic, Samuel Umtiti and Messi all find the back of the net as the Catalan giants were in tremendous form in front of goal. Their attacking intent in recent weeks is probably as a result of this upcoming tie, having scored five and six in each of their last two home league matches, winning by a five-goal margin in each of those games. When the likes of Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez are in the sort of unplayable mood they have been in recent weeks, there are few (if any) defences in world football capable of coping with their talent. Barca won all three of their home group games in this season’s competition, doing so by scoring fifteen goals and winning by a minimum of four on each occasion. They’ve won their last fourteen Champions League home games at the Nou Camp in a row and are unbeaten in nineteen and as much as this is an incredible task, if any side were capable of pulling it off, you’d fancy it to be Barcelona.

PSG Preview

PSG left it late in their home tie with Nancy on Saturday afternoon, sparing their blushes when appeared they may be left to settle for just a point. Despite this tie coming up midweek, Unai Emery again named a strong side, with the likes of Thiago Silva, Marco Verratti and Edinson Cavani all starting and it was the latter who won the game for PSG. Cavani netted an 80th minute penalty to help his side win the game 1-0 and keep up their title hopes. PSG were sensational in the first leg, taking an emphatic 4-0 lead into their trip to the Nou Camp as a result after one of the most destructive performances this Barcelona side has ever been on the receiving end of. They will also take heart from the fact they were unbeaten away from home throughout the group stages, winning twice and drawing once, although they have lost in each of their last three visits to Spain in this competition. This will be the fourth time the Parisians have travelled to the Nou Camp in the Champions League, with their previous record reading two defeats and one draw, although they have never lost by a margin greater than two in those three visits. An early goal would surely put the tie to bed and they will still look to assert themselves as an attacking force here.

Barcelona Team News

Jeremy Mathieu and Aleix Vidal are both ruled out for Barcelona with respective ankle problems. Andre Gomes (stomach) should be fit, with Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez all starting in attack.

PSG Team News

Thiago Motta (calf) is unlikely to feature against his former side. Adrien Rabiot (fever) was outstanding in the first leg but may miss out here as PSG look to protect their four-goal advantage.
