Barcelona had to come from behind to win the first leg of this tie 3-2 last week, with Andreas Christensen heading the winner just moments after coming on as a second-half substitute. Pedri had a huge impact when he replaced Sergi Roberto after an hour, setting up Raphinha for his second of the night, but Xavi will want his side to show a bit more control here if they're to make their aggregate lead count.

PSG boss and former Barca man Luis Enrique got his tactics wrong at the start of the first leg, fielding Marco Asensio as an ineffective false nine in the first half, but he introduced Bradley Barcola at the break, and Ousmane Dembele (another former Barca employee) soon had the Ligue 1 side on level terms. Vitinha added a second two minutes later, giving PSG the lead, but it was Xavi and co who would take the advantage back to Barcelona.

Here's how the teams line up:

Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen (GK); Kounde, Araujo, Cubarsi, Cancelo; De Jong, Gundogan, Pedri; Yamal, Lewandowski, Raphinha.

PSG XI: Donnarumma (GK); Nuno Mendes, Hernandez, Marquinhos, Hakimi; Ruiz, Vitinha, Zaire-Emery; Barcola, Mbappe, Dembele.

If tonight's game is anything like the first leg there will be goals from both sides. We’ve all the details you need to watch a Barcelona vs PSG live stream from anywhere further down this article.
