Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona will return this Wednesday to some quarter-finals of the Champions League when it visit to Paris Saint-Germain from the 21:00 hours (9:00 PM CET), in what it will be the party of gone of the eliminatory. The culés will visit the Park of the Princes to try achieve the best possible result of face to the second commitment, which will play the Tuesday 16 April, less than a week afterwards.

The team of Xavi Hernández arrives very rested after what went the stop of LaLiga the past weekend and after surpassing in eighth of final to the Naples, where the culés showed superiority in a lot of stretches of both parties in front of the Italians. Now, the Barça will close again this eliminatory in front of the PSG in Montjuïc, by what a result of few goals, in case of tie or defeat, would be still a very good stage for the Barcelona club, by what expects that it put the best available. To continuation, our forecast of the alignments:

Likely alignments of the PSG-FC Barcelona of the Champions League 2023/2024

  • XI FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Koundé, Araújo, Cubarsí, Cancel; Christensen, Gündogan, Frenkie of Jong; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Joao Félix.
  • XI of the PSG: Donnarumma; Zaire-Emery, Marquinhos, Danilo, Lucas Hernández; Ugarte, Fabián, Vitinha; Dembélé, Kang-in Lee, Mbappé.

Ter Stegen

The guardameta adds two consecutive parties without receiving goals and five of the last six. In fact, the last time that fit was in the turn of the eighth of the Champions League in front of the Naples. It has been in a big state of form and also has benefited of the mejoría defensive of the team. Against the PSG, Mbappé, Dembélé and Kolo Muani will be his main threats.

Koundé-Araújo-Cubarsí-Cancel

In the defence does not expect that there is any change with regard to these four players that have consolidated like headlines. Ronald Araújo, that rested in LaLiga in front of the UD The Palms, will go back to the initial alignment and Iñigo Martínez will remain in the bench, with Cubarsí contesting his second party in maximum European competition to level of clubs, to the 17 years. In the right band will be Jules Koundé and Joao Cancel in the left.

Gündogan-Christensen-Of Jong

The midfield is definitely the zone in which they are all the doubts for Xavi, or at least almost all. And it is that it expects that Andreas Christensen return to the base of the played with two interiors, although it will do it clearly without being to 100%, by what can have novelties of last hour. It expects the same with one of the interiors, in front of the possibility to see to Frenkie of Jong returning to the lawn, although it still does not have the high medical.

The Dutch is the priority for the míster, being the mate of Ílkay Gündogan in the creation of game, but everything is far to remain confirmed. Sergi Roberto is the alternative elder that considers Xavi for now, taking advantage of his experience and defensive work, highlighting besides the very good party of Fermín López in the turn in front of the Naples, but yes that it is a much more offensive profile and less contrasted in this type of European nights.

Lamine-Lewandowski-Raphinha

In the forward, as it has remained showed in the last months, only there is two 'intocables': Lamine Yamal and Robert Lewandowski. If the bet is a 4-3-3, will add a companion that aims to be a Raphinha that has won chevrons in this position in the last three parties. It would situate in the left-handed band, delaying his position for 'close' the square and besides trying help to Cancel with the defensive work in front of Dembélé.
