Reason for PSG vs Barcelona Predictions
PSG warmed up for the game with an easy 3-0 win over Brest in the French Cup, their third straight clean sheet in a third straight away game. They’ll be glad to return home for the first time since 21st February when they lost 2-0 to Monaco in a league game. PSG’s attacking threat is well intact, the team has scored 12 in the last five matches and will be improved with Angel di Maria’s return from injury. Kylian Mbappe, who scored three in the first leg at Camp Nou, scored twice in the win over Brest, and news that Neymar could return for this game is not what Barcelona would want to hear. However, the Parisians will be without Moise Kean, who has tested positive for Covid and is in isolation. The hosts have eight wins in 10 home matches and go to this clash with four straight wins in the Champions League, having scored 13 goals in the process. Pablo Sarabia finally shows his proper form and scores important goals. He creates a lot of problems for the opposing defenders. Kyllian Mbape is a world-class player, has incredible speed, and makes a difference on the pit.
It is five matches since Barcelona suffered that humiliating defeat at home to PSG, and they’ve won each of the last four. With four straight clean sheets and ten goals, Barca will feel they can pull a great comeback. To advance, they’ll have to score four unanswered goals. They’ve done that twice in the Champions League this season, but against much weaker opponents – Ferencvaros and Dynamo Kyiv. Barcelona hasn’t lost a lot of their away matches; in the last 15, they’ve suffered two losses. However, going to this game, they’ve lost back to back in the Champions League, having earlier fallen 3-0 to Juventus before the loss to PSG. It has been better for them away from home in this competition and going to Paris, and they are unbeaten in seven away Champions League matches. Ousmane Dembele is a guy who makes a lot of trouble for the opponent on the right. He has speed and is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. Pedri showed that he is a great reinforcement, he moves well and cooperates with the attackers, all praise for him. Messi is a master of football, and it is a pleasure to watch the wizard with the ball.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw.
We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
