PSG enjoyed a significant break this weekend, thanks to the freedom granted by the LFP to teams active in European competitions.

Not only did PSG benefit from this respite, but Lille and Marseille also had the opportunity to rest and focus on mounting comebacks in the Europa League and the Conference League.

For PSG, the preparation and work put in during training sessions after April 10th have been instrumental in fostering a positive environment where the Parisian squad feels fully capable of overturning the result and advancing to the UEFA Champions League semifinals.

The Parisian hope for a comeback in the UCL begins

Journalist Arthur Perrot asserts that, following the training sessions and discussions within the squad, Luis Enrique has been convinced from the start of the tie that the return leg would be the deciding factor. However, the defeat in Paris left a bitter taste for PSG, but the club remains optimistic about staging a comeback in Spain.

Mbappe will be decisive in this stage of the Champions League

It has also been evident within the dressing room that Kylian Mbappe is focused on the April 16th match in Barcelona, and his contribution to this encounter must be at 100%. While the Bondy-born star acknowledges that he could have contributed more to the team in the match at the Parc des Princes, Arthur Perrot assures that his approach for the return leg will be entirely different.

Rumors have circulated throughout the week about PSG's preparations and possible lineup for this match. With nothing concrete available, it is expected that there will indeed be significant changes in Luis Enrique's game plan compared to what was experienced on April 10th.

With their defensive line intact, it appears that the focus will be on the offensive lines, upon which PSG's comeback will depend.
