Agony for PSG in Barcelona

Outgoing Barca coach Luis Enrique warned the French champions on Tuesday that his side were capable of scoring six and they needed the full 95 minutes to pull of a miracle revival.

During his time at the Nou Camp he won everything there is to win as a player, and there are a fair few fans who would love to see him return and do the same as manager. "I think all the pressure is on Barcelona".

While no team has ever overturned a four-goal deficit in European Cup history, 16 teams have recovered from three down to qualify for the next round. After losing by the same scoreline in Munich, Bayern Munich went to Barcelona and recorded another clean sheet, ending with a 7-0 aggregate score in the 2013 semifinals.

PSG were then to rue to huge missed chances to put the tie completely beyond Barca.

Barcelona have conceded in four of their last six home games while PSG have scored in 18 of their last 20 away matches in all competitions.

"You can change tactical schemes for several reasons", Luis Enrique said.

Speaking with the capital club's official website ahead of the Camp Nou visit, El Matador reflected on a brilliant first leg performance but stressed that the tie is only at the halfway stage.

The Blaugrana have impressed in their last two matches, and confidence is high going into the match. They tallied a third early in the second half to go up 3-0 leaving them one goal away from leveling the slate.

Edinson Cavani has scored seven goals in as many games in the Champions League this season, his best tally in the competition.

PSG then anxious Barcelona with two low crosses that needed clearing and Rakitic went into the book for stopped Draxler on a unsafe counter attack.

Luis Enrique introduced the new system in the 2-1 win against Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon Stadium, after the team struggled in Paris and in a lackluster home win against Leganes in the Spanish league. "We obviously have to be ambitious, but we should not go insane from the first minute", Luis Suarez was quoted as saying by the Mirror.

It was what both sides deserved: Barcelona just reward for their attacking intent; PSG punished for failing to press and just putting men behind the ball to invite pressure.

BVB have numerous injury concerns entering the match, and, in all likelihood, the attack will be led by youngsters like Ousmane Dembele and Christian Pulisic, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the only veteran option on the pitch.

"We're unpredictable at the moment, hard for any opponent", midfielder Gonzalo Castro said.
