Emery, PSG look to get one over Barcelona at last

15 February 2017

Despite an outlay totalling hundreds of millions of euros, PSG are yet to break the glass ceiling of the last eight in the Champions League since owners Qatar Sports Investments took control of the club six years ago. It showed just how ruthless PSG's owners are in their desire to join Europe's elite. He knows us perfectly, he knows exactly what we have to offer.

"For me it's impossible to stop [Messi]".

Lucas Moura played Rabiot down the left and PSG looked likely to punish their opponents yet again, but the midfielder's cross let him down as Cavani was waiting in the middle.

The other match tonight is also fascinating as you have PSG, in danger of possibly not winning the French title for the first time since 2012, up against a Barcelona team trailing Real Madrid at the top of La Liga. Thiago Motta's absence through suspension hurts them on the defensive side of things too and with all this in mind, my favoured bet is for both teams to score which I'm surprised to see is available around the 7/10 mark.

Emery's future will likely depend on whether it can get past Barcelona in the round of 16 of the Champions League, which begins with the first leg on Tuesday. "He's a great example". "My team is PSG - I love PSG".

It's also the showdown of unorthodox - and sometimes overmatched - German goalkeepers, Kevin Trapp and Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

To put in that type of performance and still have much more in the locker. Veteran Jeremy Mathieu has experience — five seasons with Valencia and this is his third with Barca — but he is easy to turn and error-prone. Barcelona was supposed to be the favorite in the Round of 16 match, but the night turned into a damage limitation exercise, the way it does when weak sides are totally outclassed.

PSG has outstanding headers of the ball in center forward Edinson Cavani — who has 33 goals this season — and captain Thiago Silva.
