Barcelona vs PSG
UEFA Champions League – Round of 16, Second Leg
Date: Wednesday, 8th March 2017
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Camp Nou, Barcelona.
The Camp Nou will witness a top clash on Wednesday night as Barcelona welcome Paris Saint Germaine for the second leg tie of the UEFA Champions League round 16.
Barcelona are behind with 4 goals on aggregate as they lost 4-0 at Paris in the first leg. No side in history have gone through after being defeated 4-0 in the first leg.
The Blaugrana’s bid for a 10th successive quarter-finals seems to be going down the drain, but they are hoping to upturn the 4 goals in this game.
On the contrary PSG are highly advantaged in this game as they need to avoid losing with a 4-goal margin to ensure they go through. They are meeting Barca for a 3rd knockout encounter in 5 seasons and they aim to win this time having been kicked out in the previous 2.
Barcelona vs PSG: Head to Head Statistics
This will be their 11th game against each other, having played 6 times in quarter-finals, 2 times in group stage, one final and one round of 16.
They played 4 times against each other 2014/2015 season, in group stage and in quarter-finals.
Barca have not lost a game at Camp Nou against PSG, also they have lost just once here against French teams.
Barcelona vs PSG: Prediction
Barcelona look to be back on track after the first leg humiliation in Paris, they are on a 4-game winning streak. However, the only time Barcelona lost 4-0 away in UEFA competitions have ended in 7-0 aggregate (against Bayern Munich in 2012/2013).
We may not see a repeat of the 2012/2013 semi-final of Barcelona versus Bayern Munich. And Barcelona will be fired up and are expected to take on the attack from the kick-off. We have all seen in the first leg what PSG is capable of. Therefore, this is a potential goal-fest and one of the teams will end up winners. But it will be impossible for the Catalan giants to turnaround the massive deficit rom the first leg.
