Barcelona Intends to Be ‘Brave’ with Their Attack Against PSG in the First Leg

On Wednesday, Paris Saint-Germain will host FC Barcelona at the Parc des Princes for the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal clash.

Although nothing has been officially confirmed, some information is emerging about the team’s approach to the match. A report on Monday hinted at how the Catalan side intends to attack the PSG defense, leaving the French capital with an advantage for the second leg.

SPORT’s Jordi Gil reports that Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez will be brave against PSG and will form an offensive line-up in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals. İlkay Gündoğan will play more advanced, and Raphinha will start on the left.

Meanwhile, the Parisians are also strategizing on how to attack the Spanish club’s defense. Barcelona probably knows that PSG’s front three will consist of Kylian Mbappé and Ousmane Dembélé. 

However, what they and many others might not know is who manager Luis Enrique will choose to go with those two players. According to Le Parisien, Kang-in Lee will start alongside Mbappé and Dembélé against Barcelona.
