Barcelona has quite a bit of work to do if it wants to advance to the Champions League quarterfinals.
Lionel Messi and Co. enter the second leg of their Round of 16 matchup against Paris Saint-Germain down 4-1 on aggregate, meaning they will have to win Wednesday’s game by a minimum of four goals to advance.
Neymar — who missed the first meeting on Feb. 16 — has also been ruled out for the rematch with a thigh issue, but Barcelona still has the unenviable task of solving Kylian Mbappe, who scored a hat trick in the 32nd, 65th and 85th minutes of the mid-February meeting. Barca’s only goal, from Messi, came off a penalty shot in the 27th minute.
Barcelona fans will be quick to point out the club has overcome more daunting odds, and against the same club to boot. It overcame a 4-0 aggregate deficit in the 2017 Round of 16, winning the second leg at home 6-1 to send PSG home.
Can Barcelona overcome the odds again, or will PSG leave no doubt? Here’s everything you need to know — time, TV channel, streaming info and more — to tune in and find out:
