Barcelona vs PSG Tickets:
Barcelona have shown that little poor side of their gameplay where opponents can catch them, as Jose Mourinho’s Real madrid did it twice in the same week to beat them and Milan had the same strategy in the first leg. PSG can not afford to just sit back and let Barcelona dictate they have to press throughout the match and make sure Xavi, Iniesta and Messi dont have enough time on the ball although thats easier said than done.
