The home team will need Pau Cubarsi and Ronald Araujo to minimize the threat

It was a great win for Barcelona against PSG in the first leg. A particularly impressive performance by the defensive unit in containing Mbappe in the match. With confidence among the team in high spirits, the Blaugrana outfit has remained unbeaten in the last 13 matches. It was pleasing for Xavi that his side won against Cadiz in the last match, as he fielded his second-string team to give his players much-needed rest before this crucial match. 

PSG will be aiming to reverse the deficit from the first leg in this match. Their 27-game unbeaten run ended in the last match when they conceded two quick-fire goals after leading 2-1 at the time. Although Luis Enrique knows his team has a huge task in advancing to the semifinal, he will be thrilled to have a full week to prepare. To turn the tie around, Kylian Mbappe and Dembele will have to step up in this match.
