Barcelona and PSG Players Facing Suspension Threat Ahead of UCL First Leg Clash

This Wednesday, Paris Saint-Germain will welcome FC Barcelona to the Parc des Princes for the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal matchup.

However, the Blaugrana must also proceed cautiously in light of the upcoming second leg at Montjuïc due to the significant number of players at risk of suspension in the premier continental competition.

Mundo Deportivo highlights that defenders Ronald Araujo and Andreas Christensen, midfielders Sergi Roberto and Frenkie de Jong, and forwards Robert Lewandowski, Lamine Yamal, Ferran Torres, and Joao Félix are all on the verge of suspension. 

If any of them receive a yellow card in Paris, they will be ineligible to play in the second leg of the quarterfinals. Any potential absences would be significant for manager Xavi Hernandez as he seeks advancement to the semifinals.

One certain absence in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals will be Achraf Hakimi, who is suspended due to accumulated yellow cards. Additionally, PSG faces the possibility of missing defenders Lucas Hernández and Milan Skriniar, as well as midfielder Manuel Ugarte.
