Barcelona will host PSG in the first leg of a Round of 16 match on Wednesday and it promises to be a cracker. It is a much-awaited match for many reasons, but the most important reason is – Lionel Messi. With all the speculation around Messi that he will move to PSG for the next season, this game becomes very important.
Dembele just wasted a golden chance moments after Messi’s goal. Had a great look on frame off a nifty touch from Messi, and it’s as if he passed it right to Navas. No power. What a wasted chance.
Harsh on PSG, but now they must raise their game. Had been a solid performance up until the penalty & Pochettino’s men can feel very hard done by. Accidental. Kimpembe and Kurzawa look to mark his run, and he goes down. Kurzawa with the contact.
Biggest chance of the match so far goes PSG’s way. Mbappe tees Icardi up perfectly, but the Argentine does not put enough power on his effort & it gets snuffed out. Has to do better when in such a good position!
Some chance there for Griezmann. Pedri did well to send him through, but credit to Kimpembe for shutting down his fellow French national team member. Navas also with a good stop.
