Read our live commentary for tonight’s UEFA Champions League clash, as FC Barcelona will try to build on its momentum of good form and make up for the deficit of 3 goals against PSG in the 2nd leg of the round of 16 tie.

Ronald Koeman decided to go with the following XI: Ter Stegen starts in goal. In front of him, there will be Oscar Mingueza and Clement Lenglet lining up as center-backs. Whether Frenkie de Jong will be joining them in the libero role or partner up with Pedri and Sergio Busquets in the middle remains unclear due to rumors before the match. Sergiño Dest and Jordi Alba will cover both wings, with Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembélé helping each of them further up the pitch. Lionel Messi will take on his usual free-roaming role between attack and the middle.

Paris Saint-Germain, on the other hand, will be lining up like this: the experienced Keylor Navas between the posts and the last line involving Alessandro Florenzi, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe and Laywin Kurzawa. In front of them, controlling the middle, Idrissa Gueye, Leandro Paredes and Marco Verratti are in the starting lineup. Kylian Mbappe will lead their attacking line from the left, with Mauro Icardi and Julian Draxler partnering up with him.
