Paris Saint-Germain shocked the football world when they obliterated Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie, taking a huge 4-0 aggregate lead. Now it’s time to finish the job — and that will not be as easy as it might have looked three weeks ago.
Ever since that humbling loss, Barcelona have been on the warpath. They showed resiliency in a pair of close 2-1 wins in their next two matches, including one over Atletico Madrid — and then they started getting into beatdown mode. Their next two matches were won by a combined score of 11-1, and they look like they’ve finally rounded back into some of their best form at just the right time.
Of course, PSG have a huge lead to manage, which gives them a lot of room for error — and if they can get a single early goal, the away-goal tiebreaker could give them a nearly unassailable advantage to hold over Barcelona. This is going to be a tense, high-energy, high-pressure match, and one that everyone will want to pay rapt attention to, because it’s the kind of match where anything and everything can happen.
