Champions league cup is up to resume its action these following weekdays, and Paris will be the first venue to see the stage of 8 get started, where there is going to be a meeting of old mates that have been in contention since 2013 - Paris Saint-Germain takes on Barcelona as the first leg of this CL duel. The fixture is to take place in Paris, at "Parc des Princes", but however, bookmakers do not reckon it as an advantage for the hosts if they have given their preference to Catalan club.

Paris SG vs. Barcelona: Match Preview

The France reigning titleholders show off good results and at another time they are set for the national champions title this season. The club went through Zlatan Ibrahimović's dismissal, who was the main star of the squad, and regardless, at the background of his absence, the capital team does look no worse, as long as there was found a player who has taken the leadership qualities after him. "The Parisians" passed through the group campaign without any defeat, but despite that, they secured the second spot giving in the top to London Arsenal. "The Red and Blue" achieved three wins as well as draws. For goal efficiency, the team demonstrated a decent record that shows twice more goals for than against were scored during their group involvement.

Reviewing the possible squad to kick off, so Javier Pastore will not be involved in the game after he sustained injuries and has been out of the squad over three months. Also the situation regarding goalkeeper Kevin Trapp isn't clear now, because he was sidelined due to hip injury in early February, but the last round match for PSG saw him in the team lineup safe and sound.

"Blaugranes" show quite inconsistent and unused results as they are expected to, getting more points in away fixtures than home, though. Nonetheless, the Catalan club is in the top of Champions league cup pretenders, so logically speaking, they go as favourites for advancing prior to the coming duel battle. Looking back at Barcelona's group stage performance, should be noticed that Luis Enrique's men lost one match, but still they were gone off the group towards play-offs from the first line. Besides, Catalans were second by the results of which team had unloaded more goals during the group campaign - 6 games saw 20 goals scored by Barca.

This match must meet a strong line-up formed by Enrique, yet there're some players out with not the least significance. These are who injured: Gerard Piqué, Javier Mascherano, Arda Turan, Rafinha, and Aleix Vidal. Thus the back area evidently suffers a bald spot, whereas all the other lines are all right. For this reason, the probability of keeping the goal safer would be considerably as much higher as if Piqué and Mascherano were available.

Their face-to-face record swings on the guests' side with a significant preponderance. There have been nine games held between the two in overall: The French won two of them whilst twice more - 4 wins, and the other three occasions finished a draw, particularly in Spain - 2 of 3. Also we need to bear in mind that both of Paris SG's triumphs happened in the capital of France, Paris. Although Barca gives better results away from home, in this duo we're going to have to put stake on the 2nd leg in front of their own spectators.
