Barcelona v Paris Saint-Germain: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Andreas Christensen's late header earned Barcelona a 3-2 Champions League quarter-final first-leg win away to Paris Saint-Germain after a topsy-turvy clash at the Parc des Princes.

PSG are 3/1 to qualify for the semi-finals but Barca, who have kept clean sheets in each of their last six matches in La Liga, could prove hard to break down.

Barcelona v Paris Saint-Germain betting tips and predictions

Draw-Barcelona Half Time/Full Time @ 5/1

Paris Saint-Germain are aiming to overturn a 3-2 first-leg deficit against Barcelona at the Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys and they can take inspiration from their most recent Champions League trip to Catalonia.

Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick as PSG beat Barca 4-1 in the 2020/21 round of 16 and the French superstar is 22/1 to claim three or more goals in Tuesday's second leg.

However, Mbappe was largely contained by the Barcelona defence in the first leg and the draw-Barca selection appeals in the Half Time/Full Time market.

They started the game brightly in Paris, taking a 1-0 half-time lead through Raphinha before conceding two goals immediately after the break.

Xavi should be confident that his defence can keep PSG quiet in the early stages, having not conceded a goal in their last six matches in the Spanish top flight.

Three of Barca's last five league games were goalless at half-time and they led the other two 1-0 at the break thanks to Joao Felix strikes in the 38th minute against Atletico Madrid and the 37th minute against Cadiz.

Xavi's substitutions paid off handsomely in Paris, where Pedri set up Raphinha's second goal before fellow sub Christensen headed the winner, and Barca can take advantage if PSG have to chase the tie in the second half. 

Raphinha to be Anytime Goalscorer @ 12/5

Raphinha was a constant menace to the PSG defence last week, scoring twice and racking up six shots at the Parc des Princes.

He averages 3.7 shots per game in the Champions League this season and should shine in his head-to-head duel with PSG right-back Achraf Hakimi.

The Morocco star, who was suspended for the first leg, loves to get forward and join in attacks so Raphinha may get opportunities to punish the Parisians on the break.

The Brazilian winger scored with one of his five shots in Barca's last home league game against Las Palmas and took his goals with great confidence in the first leg. 

Over 5.5 Cards in Match @ 10/11

Six yellow cards were shown in the first leg, four of them for Barcelona players, and referee Istvan Kovacs could have a full notebook by the end of the 90 minutes on Tuesday.

The Romanian ref has shown 24 yellow cards and one red in his last three matches and he booked four PSG players in their 4-1 group-stage defeat at Newcastle.

PSG's last-16 defeat to Real Madrid in the 2021/22 Champions League featured eight bookings in each leg and they could be set for another combustible clash in Spain.

Barca's last three league matches have produced 16 yellow cards and two reds so backing over 5.5 cards looks a good bet given the prize at stake on Tuesday.
