It’s time for a reunion at Camp Nou between FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain! Four years after the terrible night of the comeback, the two great ones of Europe will again cross swords. Once again in the context of the knockout stages of the Champions League. An XXL meeting that Ile-de-France residents should not miss in large widths in order to keep a chance for the return match at the Parc des Princes scheduled for March 10.
Because in recent weeks, the trend has changed somewhat. Moribund and unconvincing since the start of the season, Barça seems to have regained some color in recent weeks. Unlike a mediocre PSG in the game and arrived in Catalonia without two big offensive assets: Angel Di Maria and Neymar. Suffice to say that the status of favorite granted to the Rouge-et-Bleu is somewhat shaken. Deprived of two masterpieces, Mauricio Pochettino should offer a 4-2-3-1 with the following starting XI.
Verratti in number 10
Preserved for several days, Keylor Navas would be back in the Parisian cages. In front of him, a four-way defense with Alessandro Florenzi on the right, the pair Marquinhos-Presnel Kimpembe in the axis and Layvin Kurzawa on the left. A cut above, the duo Idrissa Gueye-Leandro Paredes will be responsible for protecting the rearguard. Back too, Marco Verratti would be aligned in position 10 with Kylian Mbappé and Pablo Sarabia on each side. Unless Pochettino trusts Moise Kean. According to our information, the Italian has scored points in recent days … Finally, the axis would be entrusted to Mauro Icardi.
And opposite? Ronald Koeman should line up a 4-3-3 in which Marc-André Ter Stegen would keep the cages. Back in the group, Gerard Pique would not, however, start. The Catalan rearguard would, in fact, be made up of Sergiño Dest, Clément Lenglet, Samuel Umtiti and Jordi Alba. In the middle of the field, Frenkie De Jong, Sergio Busquets and the young Pedri would form the trio responsible for supplying the trident Ousmane Dembélé-Lionel Messi-Antoine Griezmann with ammunition.
