UCL Match Preview : Barcelona vs Paris Saint Germain

Barcelona will need to become only the fourth side to overturn 4-0 deficit in UEFA competition history and the first side to accomplish the feat since 1984/85. Luis Enrique’s side should be encouraged after putting six goals past Sporting Gijon followed up by one of their best performances of the season at the weekend when they beat Celta Vigo 5-0.

The La Liga giants are seeking a 15th straight home victory in the Champ- ions League, having won all 14 games at the Camp Nou under their current coach. They are unbeaten in 19 matches at home in the competition, a run that started in September 2013 (W18 D1).

They have also won seven of the 10 matches they have hosted against French sides at the Camp Nou.

While you can see Barcelona scoring four, it’s hard to see them keeping a clean sheet against PSG. Their failure to get an away goal in the first leg could prove their undoing on Wednesday. Naija and Bet
