class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Pochettino's side have an exceptional scoring record in the Champions League and we are backing them to net when they visit Camp Nou in the last-16
Barcelona welcome Paris Saint-Germain to Camp Nou on Tuesday evening in arguably the blockbuster Champions League last-16 tie.
The Catalans come into the game in strong form, having won their last seven La Liga games, and Saturday saw them beat Alaves 5-1 thanks to a brace from Lionel Messi.
PSG, meanwhile, head to Spain following a 2-1 weekend win over Nice but the Parisians have been far from the all-conquering domestic force we are used to seeing.
Barcelona vs PSG Latest Odds
Barca’s last European game at Camp Nou saw them beaten 3-0 by Juventus in December, their first home defeat in the Champions League is more than eight years.
The hosts are clear favourites to claim a victory this week, though, with bet365 pricing them at 19/20 (1.95) while PSG are available at 12/5 (3.40) and the draw at 3/1 (4.00).
Barcelona vs PSG Team News
Ronald Koeman remains without long-term absentees Gerard Pique, Ansu Fati, Philippe Coutinho and Sergi Roberto, while Ronald Araujo is a doubt with a muscular problem.
For PSG, Neymar is ruled out of this clash along with Angel Di Maria and Marco Veratti.
Barcelona vs PSG Preview
It has been a turbulent season for Barcelona with matters off the field without doubt impacting the team’s performances, yet there have been positive signs in the last few weeks.
Indeed, the Catalans have begun to click in the final third with Lionel Messi firing on all cylinders and the likes of Ousmane Demebele, Antoine Griezmann and Pedri all combining extremely well.

The same, however, cannot be said of Barca defensively, given they have conceded in eight of their last 10 competitive matches and shipped 14 goals in that time.
PSG should be able to take advantage of that considering they have scored in 40 of their last 41 Champions League matches and despite missing some important players, they will surely be able to contribute a high-scoring game.
Barcelona vs PSG Tips and Predictions
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals looks an excellent choice at 8/11 (1.72) while both teams to score in the first half at 5/2 (3.50) could be of interest.
