Why you should back Barcelona 

Barcelona came up with their second consecutive three-goal performance in the Champions League in the first leg, but they did it without offensive contributions from their top three scorers. Striker Robert Lewandowski, forward Joao Felix and winger Ferran Torres share the team lead in the competition with three goals apiece, but they did not convert in the win against PSG. Brazilian winger Raphinha finally broke through, registering a brace after being held without a goal in his first five UCL matches.

Danish defender Andreas Christensen also made a rare appearance on the scoresheet. The 28-year-old, who has not scored in 22 La Liga games this season, converted in the 77th minute of the first-leg contest to break a deadlock and lead Barcelona to victory. Midfielder Ilkay Gundogan notched his fourth assist of the competition on Wednesday to pull even with Raphinha and four others for the UCL lead. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back PSG

The Parisians also saw their top scorer get thwarted in the first leg. Forward Kylian Mbappe, who is tied for second in the Champions League with six goals, did not convert against Barcelona after netting three goals versus Real Sociedad in the Round of 16. Mbappe is the leading scorer in France’s Ligue 1 with 24 goals in 26 contests.

Nine different players have converted at least once for PSG in the competition, with winger Ousmane Dembele and Portuguese midfielder Vitinha scoring in the first leg against Barcelona. Midfielder Warren Zaire-Emery, who scored the Parisians’ lone goal in a 1-1 draw with Borussia Dortmund in their group-stage finale, is tied for seventh in the UCL with three assists. The 18-year-old has notched only two assists in 23 Ligue 1 matches this season. See which team to pick here.
