PSG vs Barcelona

, KO: 20:00 Apr 10, 2024, Parc des Princes
Barcelona

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN and Barcelona do battle in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night.

The French heavyweights took another step closer to finally landing an elusive first Champions League trophy with a 4-1 aggregate success over Real Sociedad in the round of 16.

With PSG on the opposite side of the draw to the likes of Man City, Arsenal and Real Madrid, they will be quietly confident about their chances of reaching this year's Wembley showpiece.

Luis Enrique's decision to rest the majority of his big hitters backfired on Saturday, as the Ligue 1 champions-elect stumbled to a 1-1 draw at home to Clermont Foot.

As for Barcelona, they find themselves back in the quarter-final stages of Champions League for the first time in four years after a 4-2 aggregate win over Napoli in the previous round.

Last time out in La Liga, Xavi's second-placed side extended their winning run to three matches with a 1-0 win over Las Palmas.

Outright Betting

PSG, who are unbeaten in their last 19 home matches across all competitions, are 19/20 favourites on William Hill.

Barcelona's last visit to the Parc des Princes in 2021 ended all square but the same outcome here is an unfancied 14/5 (Bet 365) while an away win can be backed at 5/2 (William Hill).

Betting Angles

I successfully backed Kylian Mbappe to score in PSG's first leg win over Real Sociedad and I'm happy to side with the same selection on Wednesday night at 11/10 on Bet 365.

Not only did Mbappe make the net bulge when PSG played host to Real Sociedad back in February, but he also bagged a brace in the return match in San Sebastián last month.

That means Mbappe currently sits joint-second in this season's Champions League scoring charts and all signs point towards the PSG talisman adding to his tally on Wednesday night.

The French superstar has notched in nine of his last 10 Champions League outings at the Parc des Princes and he looks worth backing to continue his rich vein of scoring form by breaching Barcelona's backline.

Whilst defensive performances have improved markedly in recent months in the Catalan camp, keeping star-studded PSG at bay in their own backyard will be no easy feat for the visitors.

With that in mind, coupled with the fact that Barcelona have failed to bag a clean sheet in their last six Champions League outings, backing the aforementioned Mbappe to strike stands out at 11/10 (Bet 365).

Elsewhere, I'm going to propose another player-based selection and put up İlkay Gündoğan to commit a foul at 11/10 on Bet 365.

The classy German midfielder has fallen foul of the referee in six of the Champions League games he has started this season so the 11/10 (Bet 365) about a repeat at the Parc des Princes is a price that definitely represents value.
