Barcelona host Paris Saint-Germain in what could be Kylian Mbappe’s final Champions League game for the French side

Write them off at your peril - Haaland, Mbappe, Bellingham will star in UCL says Ancelotti

Barcelona host Paris Saint-Germain with a place in the Champions League semi-finals on the line following a thrilling first leg in France last week. Barcelona will take a one-goal lead into the quarter-final second leg after Andreas Christensen’s header completed a remarkable 3-2 comeback win in Paris.

It was a night to forget for Kylian Mbappe, but the PSG forward scored a stunning hat-trick at the Nou Camp on his previous visit to Barcelona three years ago and the France star will need to be back to his best if the visitors are to keep their Champions League dream alive.

It’s been five years since Barcelona last reached the semi-finals of the Champions League but Xavi will look to finish the job against former boss Luis Enrique as they return to Spain. Barcelona are unbeaten in all competitions since Xavi announced he would be leaving the club at the end of the season

Pep Guardiola sends Man City fresh Champions League warning ahead of Real Madrid return

Pep Guardiola has urged Manchester City to retain the hunger required to win the Champions League rather than being complacent because they lifted the trophy last season.

City face Real Madrid in the second leg of their quarter-final on Wednesday after securing a 3-3 draw in the Bernabeu last week, with manager Guardiola saying they should not feel under less pressure because they ended their long wait to become champions of Europe.

He said: “We need to feel the pressure that you don’t want to lose the game. If you think we have done it already, we will not have this piece of hunger to compete against these teams. It’s true that the fact we won it has made us feel better and more comfortable but we need the right energy. Our people at home will help us a lot.”

Barcelona vs PSG tips: Champions League predictions, football odds & best bets

It’s advantage Barcelona after the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie against Paris Saint-Germain, but if the history of this fixture is anything to go by, a second leg comeback on Tuesday can’t be ruled out (8pm, TNT Sports 1).

Football betting sites make Barca odds-on to qualify for the semi-finals after an impressive 3-2 win in Paris last week with a brace from the inspired Raphinha and a late Andreas Christensen goal settling matters in the Spaniards’ favour.

PSG have been pushed out to 3/1 in the Champions League odds to advance to the last four after an underwhelming first leg in which they looked defensively vulnerable, failing to protect a 2-1 lead given to them in the second half by goals from Ousmane Dembele and Vitinha.

Kylian Mbappe was kept remarkably quiet by Barca, receiving a 3/10 rating from French newspaper L’Equipe for his performance, and PSG coach Luis Enrique will hope for much better from his star man as he takes his current charges back to his old stomping ground.

Barcelona vs PSG: Early team news

After a wonderful assist with virtually his first touch after returning from injury off the bench last week, Pedri may be promoted to Xavi’s starting side, particularly with Sergi Roberto and Andreas Christensen suspended. Gavi and Alejandro Balde are longer-term absentees.

Paris Saint-Germain welcome back Achraf Hakimi from suspension, which could lead to a defensive reshuffle. Luis Enrique may also consider starting Goncalo Ramos and Warren Zaire-Emery, both used as substitutes in the first leg.
