Boss Ronald Koeman told reporters: “He is fine and has been training with the group for four or five days. We have good confidence about his condition, but I have one more day to decide if he’s going to be in the team.”
Nearly four years on from the infamous La Remontada, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain renew on-the-pitch hostilities in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 battle at Camp Nou on Tuesday evening. Notwithstanding the importance of progressing to the quarter-finals for both sides, Barcelona and PSG have already locked horns off the pitch over soon-to-be free agent Lionel Messi, and all eyes will be on the Argentine this week. The hosts warmed up for this game with a comfortable 5-1 thrashing of Alaves in La Liga, and while PSG also picked up a vital victory in the league at the weekend, the manner of their 2-1 triumph over Nice was not as dominant.
Following a very good win against Alavés to extend their unbeaten streak in La Liga, Barcelona are back in action for the biggest game of the season so far: the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie against Paris Saint-Germain.
Ronald Koeman still has to prove himself in big games, and it’s hard to get any bigger than this one. Given their away record in Europe over the last three years, Barça MUST get a result in the first leg, especially since there’s a good chance that the injured Neymar will be back for the return match in Paris.
Barca finished the group stage of the competition with a heavy 3-0 home defeat by Juventus, but the side have experienced an upturn in form since then.
They have lost just one of their past 18 games – against Sevilla in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final – and go into the meeting against PSG on the back of a 5-1 thrashing of Alaves at the weekend.
Koeman said: “The team is doing better, the team is playing good, on a high level, physically the team is on a high level and we still have fantastic players.
“That means we can beat everyone. That’s what we like to show, that we can compete with the best teams in Europe.”
