Here is how PSG will be lining up against Barca.

Keylor Navas will clash against longtime rival Barca once again. Navas helped keep Barca to without an open play goal scored in the first leg of the tie.
One welcome addition for PSG is Alessandro Florenzi, who had missed the team’s last couple of fixtures in all competitions due to injury.
Leandro Paredes earns the start for PSG in the team’s midfield setup. The Argentine will be relied on to maintain possession in key moments of the fixture.
PSG does not have Neymar and Moise Kean available for this fixture, so the team will look to Mauro Icardi, Julian Draxler and Kylian Mbappe to lead the team’s attack upfront.
PSG aims for a second consecutive quarterfinal appearance in the Champions League competition.
