Can PSG turn the table in their favour on their visit to Spain?

The Spanish side Barcelona will host PSG in the second leg of the UCL Quarterfinal 2023-24 on Tuesday(16th April 2024) at Estadi Olímpic. La Blaurgana edged past the French club on their visit to France by 3-2 in the first leg of the UCL Quarterfinal. With the courtesy of Raphinha's brace in the 37th and 62nd minute of the game, Christensen’s 77th-minute goal secured the win for the Visitors.

In the last five matches, the Catalan club has won not only did they win, but Barcelona's backline was also quite solid with a record of three clean sheets in that period. Marc-Andre ter Stegen is in good form. Meanwhile, the PSG camp is not in good form. Paris Saint-Germain failed to win in its last two matches not yet a match regarding Kylian Mbappe, who rarely plays full games lately. However, the Ligue 1 Table toppers are superior in terms of recovery because they did not play last weekend. The first leg match in Paris was very exciting, however, it did not end in the favor of the hosts. Barca won with a scoreline of 3-2 over PSG, and Raphinha became the architect of the match with two goals. Last weekend, Barcelona deliberately saved Raphinha's energy for the duel against Cadiz so he would be fit when they hosted PSG.

The Spanish giants Barca only lost two of their last nine games against Paris Saint-Germain(PSG) in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League winning four and their three matches ended in a deadlock. Barca could win both legs when facing them in a single campaign for only the second time, previously doing so in the 2014-15 quarter-finals. Barca is very much a favourite for this clash after what happened in France last time, they will be happy even if they end this match in a draw which would be enough for the Spanish club to secure the UCL semis berth.

Two Barcelona players are absent due to injury, Gavi and Alex Balde and they are likely to miss this home clash against PSG. However, Xavi can rely on other players in their position, the Hosts should look at this match with confidence because their performance is good. PSG can also appear with the best strength, except for Presnel Kimpembe who is absent due to injury. Meanwhile, Achraf Hakimi has the potential to return because the sanctions have ended and he could give PSG lots of options on the right side.
