On April 10th, PSG will host one of the most anticipated matches of the season at the Parc des Princes against FC Barcelona. This match for the first leg of the quarter-finals is crucial for the Parisians to win this season, as their home advantage in this encounter will seek to make them stronger against the Catalans.

However, FC Barcelona presents several important absences for this match. Pedri and Frenkie De Jong are expected to miss the first match against Paris Saint-Germain, where apparently the recovery of these players is not the most positive facing this stage of the season, where competitive activities prove to be more exhausting for the players and especially for squad rotations.

PSG strengthens with the recovery of its players

On the other hand, Paris Saint-Germain already counts on the recovery of key players such as their captain Marquinhos, their central Milan Skriniar, and the indispensable full-back Nuno Mendes. These players have already had minutes on the field after coming back from extensive injuries in recent months, which is a positive factor for PSG facing the journey ahead in Ligue 1, Coupe de France, and the UEFA Champions League.

An outstanding match is expected in light of the anticipation between these two teams, where beyond the footballing aspect, the rivalry between both clubs has a history that transcends several decades back to their first encounter in 1995. Therefore, the match is eagerly awaited by both the Barcelona and Parisian fans, just like all the ties that this UEFA Champions League brings us.
