Xavi Hernandez States ‘Many’ PSG Players Could Feature in Barcelona’s Starting XI

FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain will clash in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League tie on April 10 at the Parc des Princes. While the two squads have domestic fixtures to worry about, the football media will ask questions about the matchup.

Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez spoke to the media on Friday and one of the questions he answered was over PSG’s squad. More specifically, the Spanish boss noted what players would be in the Catalan side’s starting 11. 

Xavi didn’t go into what specific PSG players he’d see making the Barcelona squad, but he did admit there would be quite a few challenges for a starting job. 

“It’s difficult, many, although they would logically have competition,” Xavi told reporters (h/t Mundo Deportivo). “We are facing two teams that have a very similar level, in the same way that Luis said that, I could also say the same.”

It will be interesting to see how these two teams fare. Kylian Mbappé will be the star of the two legs, and if he can put PSG on his back and have some help, it’s hard to see the Parisians not advancing to the semifinals.
