The draw of eighth of final of the UEFA Champions League 2016-17 has given the reason to Luis Enrique, that already left clear during the back press conference to the goleada against the Borussia Mönchengladbach (4-0) that to the FC Barcelona would touch him "some joyita" in the eighth of final, following the "tradition" of the last seasons.

"To us it will touch us the most difficult rival or the one who more points have added in this phase of group. A joyita. If no, already you will see. Zero surprises", auguró then Luis Enrique, in some statements that called the attention by the indignation and sorna contained, since usually the Asturian trainer is used to to be more comedido with his words to the press.

The case is that, passed the draw of Champions League, is clear that the Asturian technician of the Barça has not made a mistake when having to confront the FC Barcelona against Paris Saint-Germain, that is not to the one hundred by one hundred but even so has a staff of dream. The French was one of the two "joyitas" that could touch him to the Barça beside the Bayern, valuing to Benfica, Port wine and Leverkusen in an inferior stair.

"To us it will touch us the most difficult rival or the one who more points have added"

The ones of Ancelotti and the ones of Unai Emery conform two of the most powerful staff of all Europe, but his respective trainers have not achieved up to now do that his footballers play like an able team to marvel and with own style. It suffices with saying that the Bayern lost 3-2 against the modest Rostov in the penultimate day.

Paris Saint-Germain neither is flowing as of habit in Tie it 1 after long, whereas in this last day of phase of groups empató 2-2 in the Park of The Princes in front of the humble Ludogorets, one of the worst teams of the European competition.

The players of the PSG -Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Cavani, Gave María...- They are able to win to any club, of this there is not doubt. But if a thing is clear is that the FC Barcelona does not have fear of anybody. In fact, it is favourite.
