PSG will face Barcelona

Paris SG – FC Barcelona


There is something schizophrenic about this PSG. When you’re in the usual ones over and over again, the ferry takes 45 minutes as a ghost before the big one on its own. His quarter-final all – a stage of the competition that he had not reached since 2021 – is the perfect illustration of this: after a listless first period against Barça on Wednesday, in the wake of an attacking trio if Mbappé-Asensio – Dembélé tasteless, Paris set the alarm to catch up and even better.

The French language, critical for the lack of justice in the last gesture, a son of the revolt by crucifying Marc-André Ter Stegen with a powerful strike (1-1, 48e) – son 2e but in 35 matches this season.

This is the case in isolation: it is the rescue on the line of Nuno Mendes from a corner (20e) or forgetting to mark on a Raphinha set back (34e), PSG was also very well able to return to the locker room with an even bigger gap to fill. Barça appears reserved and realistic for more time.
