PSG vs Barcelona by Rahul
The form of both these sides is impeccable of not losing in their last 4 games, will boast great confidence to both their managers as they take on each other in this quarter final, in the obvious tie of the round. PSG have been in great form scoring at least 3 goals in each of their last 4 games with goals coming from all over the park including Silva, Matuidi, Lavezzi, Ibrahimovic, Cavani and Pastore. Their forward line is a very talented one, and when you have Zlatan in your lineup, anything, and I really mean anything can happen. Defensively is where PSG have not looked soo solid conceding in 3 out of those 4 games, except in the League Cup when they took on a 10 men Bastia side, who didn't have any firepower left to score.
Barcelona on the other hand came into this weekend with a 10 game winning streak, and look set to make it 11 in a row before Sevilla came back to snatch it to a 2-2 game. Barcelona had been in good scoring form with Messi and Neymar specifically leading their goal scoring efforts, and have been supplemented on occasions with support from Suarez and Iniesta as well. Barcelona's defense has been a struggle, conceding in 6 out of those 11 games; but against quality attacks like Sevilla, Real Madrid, Man City and Villareal, they have always conceded and with the PSG attack, I won't be surprised if they concede.
This game has goals written all over it. Barcelona will go to try and seal off the game in Paris, while PSG are coming off a solid League Cup trophy, so I expect both teams to find the net in this one.
