Barcelona v PSG – click here to bet
Barcelona are currently top of the Spanish La Liga but they have a mountain to climb if they are to progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League after losing 4-0 away to PSG in the first leg. They will carry some goal scoring form into the match having beaten Celta Vigo 5-0 at home on Saturday. They can also take encouragement from their group qualification where they scored 15 goals without reply in 3 home matches with two 4-0 victories and a 7-0 win.
PSG are locked in an exciting battle for the French title they are level on points with Monaco and Nice with Monaco though having played a game less than the other two. They beat Nancy 1-0 at home on the weekend and they were undefeated on the road in qualification winning 2 and drawing 1. Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score backers would have collected in all 3 of PSG’s away group matches.
Barcelona have won the last 2 head to heads between the two sides that have been played in Spain by a 2 goal margin.
Suggested bet: Barcelona clean sheet, YES, at 18/10
Barcelona have to chase the game and that explains a big price as bookmakers expect them to leave gaps at the back for their opponents to exploit. They will know though that conceding an away goal would be the end of their hopes and I actually think they may opt to keep things fairly tight early on.
