Less than four years after the legendary turnaround, Paris Saint-Germain again face Barcelona, at the Camp Nou, for the first leg of the Champions League round of 16. In this game we will see the return of Marco Verratti, absent in the victory over Nice.
If, on the one hand, coach Pochettino can count on Verratti’s return, on the other, the great absence is Neymar. The Brazilian was injured during the victory over Caen in the French Cup and will be out of action for four weeks.
Besides number 10, Angel Di Maria is also out. But despite the notable absences, the PSG coach has summoned a group of 22 players to go to Catalonia, where he seeks to achieve a good result in the first game of the UCL round of 16, which will be played on Tuesday (16), at 17h (from Brasilia).
