Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will meet Barcelona at the Parc des Princes in the first leg quarter final encounter in the UEFA Champions league.

This is the third time that both teams will meet in the competition this season as they both faced each other on two occasions during the group stages as they were in group F and recorded a win each.

PSG will have a lot of confidence coming into this match due to their recent good form. Over the weekend they were crowned Coupe de la Ligue Champions after beating Bastia 4-0. Also they are topping the league as they look to retain their title.

PSG will hope to reach the semi finals this time as they have been stopped at the quarter final stages in the last two seasons by Barcelona and Chelsea who they won to make it to this stage.

Barcelona enter this match with mixed feelings, they had won their last nine matches before being held to a 2-2 draw by Sevilla at the weekend which saw their lead at the top of the Spanish La Liga reduced to two points.

PSG face a lot of injury problems and suspensions with the likes of Zlatan, Luiz and Motta all set to miss the match. Despite this PSG will rely on the likes of Cavani and Matuidi to give them the win.

Barcelona has no major injury worries and will look towards the trio of Messi, Suarez and Neymar for victory.
