Barcelona vs PSG Preview 


We could have easily seen more than five goals in the first match, as both sides were very aggressive with less focus on defending. I anticipate another high-scoring affair, BTTS & over 2.5 goals being the best bet.

  • Barcelona have seen BTTS & over 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches (Champions League). 
  • Barcelona have seen BTTS & over 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 4 matches against PSG.

Head to Head 


Barcelona have a 5-3 advantage against PSG with 4 draws in 12 matches. 

Barcelona won the first leg 3-2 last week in France. 

Barcelona Form 


Barcelona’s most recent performances have been brilliant, earning six consecutive victories across competitions, the most recent one against Cadiz 1-0 in La Liga, Joao Felix scoring the only goal in first half.

Xavi Hernandez’s side looked great offensively in Paris last week, Raphinha scoring the first two goals, while Christensen finished the job in the 77th minute on Ilkay Gundogan’s assist. 

Earlier in March, Blaugrana claimed two big scalps against Atletico Madrid 3-0 (La Liga) and Napoli 3-1 (UCL, won 4-2 on aggregate), Robert Lewandowski appearing on the scoresheet in both games.  

Also, the winning run helped them reduce the gap from Real Madrid to eight points and possibly rejoin the title race in Spain with seven rounds left. 

Barcelona Injuries & Team News 


Gavi and Alejandro Balde are injured. 

Sergi Roberto and Andreas Christensen are suspended. 

PSG Form 


PSG had 1.23-1.78 expected goals, 56% possession and 18-15 shots in the first tie which they lost 3-2. The Saints scored two quick goals and took the 2-1 lead after just six minutes in the second half, Ousmane Dembele and Vitinha finding the net, bht their back line collapsed twice later. 

A great run of four consecutive victories in their French affairs has ended in early April, claiming just one point at home against the underdog Clermont 1-1, Goncalo Ramos scoring a late equalizer.  

The mentioned winning streak includes victories in the French Cup against Nice 3-1 and Rennes 1-0, and two commanding appearances in the Ligue 1 against Marseille 2-0 and Montpellier 6-2.  

The Saints had no troubles in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16, winning both encounters against Real Sociedad 2-0 and 2-1, Kylian Mbappe scoring three goals. 

PSG Injuries & Team News 


Presnel Kimpembe (Achilles tendon rupture) and Sergio Rico (fitness) are ruled out for this match. 

Verdict

Both sides have incredible potential when it comes to scoring. I anticipate another open match and BTTS & over 2.5 goals to land. Also, 9 of 12 meetings between these two sides ended with 4+ goals, so over 3.5 is value.
