Lionel Messi’s Barcelona take on PSG in the Champions League

Lionel Messi will lead his side but won’t face former team-mate Neymar who has been ruled out of the first-leg with a thigh problem.

But there will still be plenty of quality on show in what should be a thrilling encounter.

These two last met in their infamous Champions League last-16 tie in 2017 when Barca overturned a 4-0 deficit to go through as 6-5 winners.

Barcelona vs PSG: Team news

Mauricio Pochettino insists he is not burdened by the history of PSG’s Champions League failures ahead of their clash with Barcelona.

Asked how he felt ahead of his biggest test as the new PSG boss, Pochettino said: “I am very calm. We are excited because there is so much passion around the club and this is a special game.

“We would so like to win this coveted trophy, it is a very big passion.

“History is in the past and we are now in a different reality with different players. Whatever happens, the past is behind us.

“We joined the club 40 days ago and we started to feel that the Champions League is important for the club and the team.

“It is an obvious target for PSG to win the Champions League, that is our responsibility and the fans are excited about it as well.

“Our intention is always to get the best out of our players and the people within the staff.

“The fans and the whole club want to build something better, that is our target.”
