Our Tipster’s Angle

Both the teams played well in the group stage and qualified for the round of 16 with ease. But FC Barcelona looks outmatched against PSG, even though they are missing out on their top scorer Neymar. Barcelona has won only one of their last nine away games in UCL and they have to win by a margin of 4 goals or more to qualify for the quarter-finals or win on away goals which is going to be challenging against the last-time runners up. Thus, PSG is expected to win this match. 

Tip 1: Total Goals – Over 3.5

Both teams have scored 17 goals in UCL this season averaging 2.4 per match and out of the last 7 matches they have played against each other, they have scored 3 or more goals in 6 encounters. The last leg of this fixture finished 4-1 in favor of PSG with Kylian Mbappe scoring a hattrick. Also, he is the current top scorer in the France Ligue 1 with 18 goals this season. With both Messi and Mbappé on the field, a good amount of goals are expected in this match. Barcelona is expected to go all out on attack as they are chasing a 3 goal lead on aggregate which may lead to a weaker defense. PSG is known for preying on these kinds of situations and is expected to enjoy a goal or two. With both teams having great attacking players, the total goals in the match are expected to be over 3.50, and 2.02 odds are available for the same on the Casumo sportsbook.

Tip 2: PSG To Win

Though PSG has only won 3 out of their 7 matches against FC Barcelona, they are favorites in the game because of their recent form. PSG has scored 34 home goals this season in League 1 and has conceded only 8 goals. The current aggregate score of 4-1 with 4 away goals is in favor of the home team as well. FC Barcelona is expected to go full-on attack, with Pique injured and a weaker defense that conceded 9 goals in 7 UCL matches this season, the defense is expected to be penetrated multiple times. Also, Barcelona has only won one of their last 9 away knockout UCL games which makes PSG favorites in this leg. Considering all these factors, PSGis the favorite to win against FC Barcelona, and 2.16 odds are available for the same on the Casumo sportsbook.


It is going to be a thrilling 90 minutes or maybe more as two big clubs collide this Thursday. Barca made a comeback in 2017 by winning 6-1 at home after a 4-0 defeat in the away game against PSG. Can we expect something similar this Thursday? Or the French giants PSG going to cruise over Barca just as they did in the first leg? Either way, it is going to be a worthwhile watch.  Summarizing a couple of bets mentioned above.
