Barcelona don’t tend to lose many games in the Champions League, but when they do, it’s almost always spectacular. So it proved in their dramatic blowout at the Parc des Princes last month, when Paris Saint-Germain pulled off a remarkable 4-0 victory of Luis Enrique’s side in the first leg of their round of 16 tie.
The reverse fixture takes place at Camp Nou on Wednesday, with Barça hoping to pull off one of the most dramatic turnarounds in the tournament’s history. They know they’ve got nothing to lose, and in a strange way, that may well play into their favour. Though PSG remain strong favourites, Barça have a front three of Neymar, Luis Suárez and Lionel Messi. They shouldn’t ever be counted out.

Three big things to know
1. Barça’s only confirmed absentees are in defence, where Aleix Vidal and Jérémy Mathieu are still missing. They should otherwise have a full-strength team available.
2. Though PSG have no confirmed absentees, they have four important first teamers who are currently on the treatment table. Marquinhos, Adrien Rabiot, Ángel Di María and Thiago Motta will all have to pass late fitness tests before they’re given the go ahead.
3. PSG have never managed to win away at Camp Nou, and suffered a 2-0 defeat there when these sides met in the quarterfinals of this tournament back in 2015. However, with such a large buffer heading into this match, that would still be enough to see them progress here.
