PSG vs Barcelona by Rahul

PSG
VS
Barcelona
Arguably this is the tie of the round as PSG host Barcelona in a re-match from the quarter finals from last year where the 2 sides drew 2-2. But that was a different PSG team as they are now weakened by the absence of 3 of their top players in Lavezzi, Thiago Silva and most importantly Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

 

Blanc's men have endured a horrid time so far, winning just 1 game in their last 5, to put them in 4th spot in Ligue 1, as Marseille have built up a 5 point lead over them. What is worst for them is in their last 4 games which they drew, they have conceded in every single game there. With the notable absences, it is going to be difficult for Cavani to lead the attack line by himself specially also since they have no notable backup other than young 21-year old Jean Bahebeck who is still finding his way in the big leagues.

 

Barcelona have started to show us what they are all about; strong defensive ethos as they have yet to leak a single goal this campaign and also back to their spectacular best in front of goal, which is a treat for all of us. What continues to surprise you is how they continue to develop their players from La Masia with Munir Haddadi showing to be the latest upcoming talent that is keeping Pedro out of the starting lineup. Ivan Rakitic has signed on as a cheaper replacement for Cesc Fabregas, and has proved to fit in well with Luis Enrique's system and Neymar is truly giving Barcelona return for the money they paid for him netting 6 goals in 5 appearances.

 

Barcelona truly look strong on paper, look strong on the pitch and probably are strong mentally due to their winning run. PSG have their issues on and off the park; and I expect their confidence to be low specially with rumors of Blanc's imminent sacking. Barcelona should win this win and will run the game ragged, I hope.
