Barca’s current performance
Barcelona is one of the two big teams in the Spanish La Liga where one of the greatest of all time Lionel Messi is the captain. He is leading the team as well as the attacking division. Under his leadership, Barcelona’s attack is too fearsome for any club though they are not in their expected track as we speak. Team Barcelona is holding the 5th position in the running season of La Liga and we know that they failed to lift the last season’s title. Now, Koeman is their new manager but he is failing to fill up the big expectation. In these circumstances, the team is going to face the Ligue 1 champions PSG.
PSG’s current performance
Now, when we turn to the position of the French champion Paris Saint Germain, they have not in their expected form as well. Under the guidance of Tuchel, the team played the last season’s Champions League final but against Bayern Munich, they did not get the ultimate victory. Now, they are again here in the UCL and try to grab their very first UCL title. Barcelona will be undoubtedly a big threat to them. In the league, the current Ligue 1 champion has played 15 matches and managed 10 victories. With the 31 points, the team is holding the 3rd position so far. But in the UCL group stage, the team PSG finished with the group champion and now, looking forward to their next match.
Barcelona key players
If we look at the Barca squad, they have one of the greatest Lionel Messi in the squad. He is obviously the most potential player and the main focus of the match will be on him. At the same time, Barcelona has some other top-rated players like Coutinho, Griezmann, Dembele, Ansu Fati. All of them are very best in the current time. And if they give their best on the ground, PSG will find them difficult to win against them.

PSG key players
The French club PSG also has a number of top-rated players. One of the former teammates of Messi, the Brazilian Neymar is still on PSG’s side. He can be dangerous for the Catalan club. Besides, Mbappe will be beside Neymar and the duo is very destructive for any club no doubt. The team also has Angel di Maria, the Brazilian Rafinha, and Argentine striker Mauro Icardi. All of them are very talented players. So, they can easily make any change within very short notice.
Now, the first leg of the UCL round of the last sixteen between them will take place at the home venue of Barcelona but the poor performance of the home team might not help them much. The result might go to the French club’s side. So, the prediction is Barcelona 1 – 2 Paris SG.
