PSG vs Barcelona, UCL 10.03.2021
Barcelona will need to dig deep in their bag to a comeback similar or better second leg comeback like the one they had four years ago against PSG to stand a chance at making it to the quarter-finals of this year’s Champions League competition.
They trail 4-1 from the first leg and have an uphill task considering this second leg takes place away in Paris.
Let’s take a look at some betting predictions we have assessed for this game with the prices as offered by Betwinner Welcome Bonus.
Despite conceding the opening goal through a Lionel Messi penalty early in the first half, PSG turned up the heat, with Kylian Mbappe taking centre stage, with a hattrick and Moise Kean adding the other to completely outrun the Catalans in their own backyard.
The Parisians will look to hold onto this three-goal advantage but they will be wary of complacency having lost such advantage three years ago to the same opponents when they beat them 4-0 in France but crashed out after an incredible 6-1 whopping in Spain. With Neymar rated as doubtful for this match, Pochettino will look to Mbappe yet again to lead the troops here.
Barcelona’s defence was woeful in that first leg and they paid dearly for it. This has been a recurring theme particularly for the opening half of the season. They went draw with Cadiz at Camp Nou in their next match but have since rallied with four straight domestic wins, including a couple over Sevilla in the Spanish Cup and La Liga.
They, therefore, come into this match with an element of confidence. However, overcoming a three-goal deficit in Paris is easier said than done.

PSG VS BARCELONA MATCH FORECAST AND BETTING TIPS
After that 4-1 loss at the Camp Nou, it will take a miracle for Barcelona to turn this around. They are in good form domestically, but scoring four goals without reply at the home of the French giants is a bit of a stretch, even for the most optimistic of Barca supporters. They will try to give themselves a chance though and as a result, we should have an interesting end-to-end encounter here. The Corner market is always of great interest in such games and we fancy Over 9.5 corners @ 1.79 for our initial betting tip for today.
With Barca having no choice but to attack, they will certainly leave themselves exposed at the back. Mbappe did the damage in the first leg and PSG will be counting on him to be the difference-maker yet again. He has been in terrific form, scoring 4 goals in PSG’s last three games which they all won. With Barca likely to afford some spaces at the back, we fancy Mbappe’s raw pace and goal instincts to earn him another goal here @ 1.90 at the bookmaker Betwinner as our last pick.
