PSG predicted XI v Barcelona: Bradley Barcola and Achraf Hakimi set to return

Paris Saint-Germain are expected to field a much-changed side to the one that lost 3-2 at the Parc des Princes last Wednesday when they face Barcelona in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday. 

PSG go into the game fresh and are able to welcome back players that missed the first leg. Luis Enrique could make four changes, as per L’Équipe. Achraf Hakimi has returned from the suspension that ruled him out of the first leg, whilst Bradley Barcola has now sufficiently recovered from the injury that he suffered on France U21 duty. The former Olympique Lyonnais could start on the right of the attack with Marco Asensio dropping to the bench. 

Warren Zaïre-Emery, whose absence from the starting XI in the first leg was questioned, is also set to return for PSG. He will likely replace Lee Kang-in, whilst Lucas Hernandez could also be benched. Danilo Pereira could take his place.
