10:00PM Tuesday 09 Apr
With just three games separating them from the Wembley final, Barça and Paris Saint Germain will fight it out for a ticket in the semi-finals at the Camp Nou tonight(20.45). Barça will be looking to finish off the tie at home after their 2-2 draw in Paris.
Barça will go into the game missing two important figures at the back - Mascherano and Puyol – with Adriano also doubtful, along with Pedro and Messi, and the coaching staff will have to make a big decision as to who partners Piqué at the heart of the defence.
Piqué, Alba, Adriano and Song are just one card away from suspension – with Lavezzi and Thiago Silva in the same situation for PSG.
PSG out to repeat history
For their part, PSG, with ex-Barça players Maxwell, Ibrahimovic and Motta in the ranks, will be hoping to make their second appearance in a Champions League semi-final since the 1994/5 season, when they beat Barça in the quarter finals, winning 2-1 in Paris after a 1-1 draw at the Camp Nou. Tonight though, has to Barça’s night, with an exciting draw in Nyon on the horizon.
