Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST, with Sky Sports 2, Sky Sports 2 HD, Sky Go, Sky Sports Red Button and Sky Sports Events Centre providing live coverage in the UK.


The leaders of Ligue 1 and La Liga are both keen on a place in the last four of Europe's elite club competition, after playing out a thrilling 2-2 draw in the first leg in Paris last week.

Lionel Messi put the Blaugrana ahead in the first half but former Catalan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic levelled the scores with a tap-in in the 79th minute. Xavi converted a spot-kick, one minute from time, nearly giving Barca a 2-1 first leg lead to take to Camp Nou. However, PSG anchorman Blaise Matuidi's deflected effort deep into stoppage time gave the French side a crucial equaliser and a massive shot in the arm, ahead of their trip to Spain.

Barcelona still hold an advantage in the tie, courtesy of their two away goals. Also, the Catalans are on a 20-match unbeaten run at Camp Nou in the Champions League, winning 16. PSG need a win or a high-scoring draw to progress to the semis but they will fancy their chances, having won three of their four away matches in the competition this season.

The Spaniards warmed up for this game with a thumping 5-0 win over Mallorca at Camp Nou on Saturday, using a rotated sqaud. Meanwhile, the Frenchmen beat Rennes 2-0 away on the same night, with seven of the 11 players, who started the first leg being either benched or rested.

Thiago Silva is expected to start, while Lionel Messi will have a late fitness test

Team News

Barcelona: Lionel Messi is facing a race against time to find fitness and appears more likely to start from the bench. Meanwhile, Pedro is back in contention for a place in the XI, after recovering from a calf injury. However, Cesc Fabregas and Alexis Sanchez, who shared five goals and three assists between them in the 5-0 triumph at the weekend, now look favourites to start in the attack, alongside David Villa, who was rested against Mallorca.

Carlos Puyol and Javier Mascherano remain sidelined with knee injuries, meaning that holding midfielder Alex Song, youth-teamer Marc Bartra and full-back Adriano Correia would compete each other to partner Gerard Pique at the heart of defence. Another option is Sergio Busquets dropping into the centre defence. Eric Abidal made an emotional return as a substitute against Mallorca, a year after having a liver transplant, but is unlikely to start.

Probable Line-up: (4-3-3) Valdes; Alves, Pique, Song, Alba; Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta; Sanchez, Fabregas, Villa

PSG: Skipper Thiago Silva is expected to start, despite missing the Rennes game due to a bruised knee suffered in the first leg. His compatriot and centre-back partner Alex has recovered from a thigh problem and should also make it the XI.

Matuidi is suspended for this game, after picking up his third booking of the competition in the first leg. In his absence, David Beckham, who was benched at the weekend, should see off competition from Clement Chantome to start alongside Marco Verrati in the two-man centre midfield. Thiago Motta is also in contention for that role but the Italian is short on fitness, having played only one game in more than two months because of a groin injury.

Probable Line-up: (4-4-2) Sirigu; Jallet, Alex, Thiago Silva, Maxwell; Moura, Beckham, Verrati, Pastore; Ibrahimovic, Lavezzi
