DIARIO AS

Luis Enrique goes for a back three as Barcelona try to make history coming back from 4-0 down in a Champions League second leg. Di María misses out for PSG.

Luis Enrique is missing just Aleix Vidal and Jeremy Mathieu from his squad as they welcome PSG to the Camp Nou for their decisive last sixteen tie in the Champions League. Doubts hovered over Angel di Maria's inclusion as well as Thiago Motta but the team news is in as we try to figure out what both managers are thinking ahead of this one. Will Unai Emery's side sit and soak up pressure, trying to catch Barça on the hop or will they play a more attacking style to keep Barcelona in line? Have a look at the teams and decide for yourself.

Luis Enrique appears to be going for a back three with four in midfield including Busquets, Rafinha, Iniesta and Rakitic. Mascherano, Pique and Umtiti will operate as a back three and it is as you were, and as it always was up front with the MSN. He was obviously not happy with how PSG dominated the middle the last day and wants to assert control, and imagines PSG will allow him plenty of possession in the middle third as they try to operate as a counter-attacking team.

Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen, Mascherano, Piqué, Umtiti, Rakitic, Sergio, Rafinha, Iniesta, Suárez, Messi, Neymar.

Angel di Maria does not start for PSG and in his place is Lucas Moura. That midfield three remains the same with the energetic Rabiot, versatile Verratti and balancing force that is Matuidi. Meanwhile, Thiago Silva starts also, and will be an added boost from the first leg. The Meunier and Kurzawa start on the left and right.
