Barcelona Ace Dives Deep into High-Stakes Champions League Battle Against PSG

FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain will clash on April 10 and 16 in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals. Both teams likely see themselves as having a clear path to the final in London, considering the winner faces Atletico Madrid or Borussia Dortmund.

Nonetheless, Barcelona defender João Cancelo believes that the matchup is a challenging one for the Catalan squad. In an interview with A Bola, the right-back analyzed the Champions League tie as the first leg quickly approaches.

“In the Champions League, all teams are strong,” Cancelo said. “PSG is a team that has great players and a great coach whom I appreciate very much. It will be a very difficult game, but we will try. We are Barcelona, and we will try to play our game and try to win.”

The La Liga team could face a hurdle in the first leg at the Parc des Princes. On Saturday, Barcelona defender Jules Koundé finished the friendly match against Germany with problems with his right ankle.

As a result, if the Frenchman cannot be fit for the first leg then the backline will have a difficult challenge of defending Kylian Mbappé. These next few weeks of monitoring injured players will be interesting to follow to see which squad can be the healthiest.
