Looking at the La Liga side to begin with, they put in one of the best performances the Champions League has seen in the second leg against AC Milan last time out, winning 4-0 and progressing 4-2 on aggregate.
If they can perform to that level for the rest of the competition, there will no stopping the Catalan giants.
Barca know that this is one of the biggest nights in PSG’s recent history though and that it isn’t going to be an easy night in Paris, but if they focus on their own game, they should take the spoils in this one.
The away side are being tipped as the 13/17 favourites to win on the night and as ever, all eyes are sure to be on Lionel Messi as the Argentine is in superb form right now.
He bagged a brace against AC Milan, putting in a stunning performance, and he has also scored in his last 19 La Liga matches, so it is going to be tough for the hosts to keep him quiet in this one.
This is the type of game that Messi should be relishing and he is the current favourite to score the first goal of the game at 3/1, which might prove to be excellent value.
As for Paris Saint-Germain, they know that they are the underdogs to reach the semi-finals, but that could suit them somewhat as it takes a little bit of pressure off.
In Carlo Ancelotti, the Ligue 1 outfit have a manager that has won this compeition two times in the past, so he knows just what it takes to come out on top in these big matches.
The Italian might use tactics that his native country are known for and remain solid at the back, hitting teams on the counter attack and winning by the odd goal. He will see how Inter Milan and Chelsea have knocked Barcelona out in recent years and look to emulate their style of play.
At the moment, you can back PSG to win this one at 21/5, so for a home team, they do have excellent odds.
Barcelona rely on Messi a lot, but PSG also need their star man – Zlatan Ibrahimovic – to perform in this one. The Swede has been excellent since joining from AC Milan in the summer and if given the chance, is likely to stick the ball in the back of the net. He is at 11/2 to score first.
At this stage of the compeition, all games look to be cracking encounters and this is no exception. The action in Paris gets underway from 7.45pm on Tuesday evening.
