Matchup details

For the first leg Barça will be without the suspended Dani Alves, while PSG will miss two of their top players. "The absence of Ibrahimovic and Verratti is important but they have other players who are equally dangerous," stressed Luis Enrique, who was also happy with the order of the matches. "Having the return leg at home is big. It's important to get a good result in Paris and try to qualify for the semi-finals in front of our fans.
