Tonight, starting at 9:00 p.m., PSG and FC Barcelona will face each other in the Parque de los Príncipes, behind closed doors, on the return leg of their knockout round of the Champions League.
In the first leg, the Parisians made a tremendous show of power at the Camp Nou, defeating the Blaugranas 1-4, with an unstoppable Mbappé. So, neither Messi nor Barça were up to the task. But it has been almost a month since the “desfeta” and Barça is another team.
Koeman’s men, after falling to PSG, drew at home against Cádiz in a match that they played without competitive tension. But after this confrontation, the players changed the chip and the technician changed the game system (he went from 4-3-3 to 5-3-2), and the team changed radically. They beat Elche 3-0, Sevilla 0-2 (in the League), Sevilla 3-0 (eliminating them in the Cup semifinal) and Osasuna 0-2 (in the League). Messi is another: he has assumed the direction of the team’s offensive game and falls much more to organizational positions. Young people have taken a step forward and are showing their quality. Dembélé had never played at such a high level. Jordi Alba is claiming his position in the national team. The supporting actors on the team are responding well in the minutes they have. And the institutional crisis has ended, with the election of Joan Laporta as the new president.
Barça arrives in Paris wanting to make a dream come true. He has almost everything lost, but there is still room for illusion and hope. Messi is the best player in the history of football and he still wants to write new pages of gold in his biography. It matters little that the defense of the team is very touched by the absences of Piqué and Araújo. Barça will go out tonight to give it their all in the Parque de los Príncipes and win all the duels.
