Barcelona’s Xavi Already Has Ideal Starting XI for UCL First-Leg Clash Against PSG

The UEFA Champions League quarterfinals first-leg tie between FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain is a few weeks away. Still, manager Xavi Hernandez already has his starting lineup planned out for the match.

Spanish journalist Javi Miguel provided the lineup that Barcelona’s coach is considering for the first leg in Paris. The Catalan side will need a favorable result if they want to head home with positive momentum for the second leg.

According to Miguel, Marc-André ter Stegen will be in goal, and the backline will consist of Jules Koundé, Pau Cubarsí, Ronald Araujo, Joao Cancelo, and Andreas Christensen. 

Xavi counts on İlkay Gündoğan and Frenkie De Jong in the midfield. For the attack, the group will consist of Lamine Yamal, Lewandowski, or Raphinha/Ferran Torres. It will be interesting to see whether this unit can provide the scoring punch at the Parc des Princes.

Now, it will be up to PSG manager Luis Enrique to combat this potential starting lineup that Xavi wants to roll with in this significant match.
