What score would Paris Saint-Germain eliminate?
Paris-SG had struck a blow on the ground of FC Barcelona, three weeks ago.
4-1 victory in Barça's lair, including a hat-trick signed Kylian Mbappé.
A score which is synonymous with qualification in 100% of cases in the history of European Cups (79/79) ... To achieve the impossible, Barça will have to score at least four goals this Wednesday.
A 4-0 victory will allow them to pass, and a score of 4-1 would send the two teams into overtime, then on penalties if there is any affinity.
Lionel Messi and company will have to win by a minimum of four goals, scoring at least five times if Paris finds the way to the goal (5-1, 6-2, 7-3, 8-4…).

With or without Neymar?
It will be without.
However, hope was growing in recent days, with Neymar's return to training at the end of the week, a little less than a month after his adductor injury in Caen.
"He will not be in Brest, but we are very happy with his development and we will see in the days to come if he can be part of the group against Barcelona", slipped Mauricio Pochettino, last Friday.
To begin with, we imagined that it would be too fair.
But an entry during the match… Finally, nothing at all.
“We are sad.
He really hoped to have recovered for this match, but he still needs a few days, ”said the Argentine coach on Tuesday.
Besides Neymar, Paris will be deprived of Moise Kean (covid-19) and Juan Bernat (knee).
Angel Di Maria and Marco Verratti resumed last Saturday.
Alessandro Florenzi and Thilo Kehrer are in the group.
Barça side, Philippe Coutinho (knee), Sergi Roberto (ischios), Andu Fati (meniscus), Gerard Piqué (knee) and Ronald Araujo (ankle) are out.

What results for both teams since the first leg?
After their resounding victory at Camp Nou (1-4), PSG got their feet in the mat against Monaco (0-2), before aligning three away wins, in Dijon (0-4) and Bordeaux (0-1) in L1, and in Brest (0-3), in the Coupe de France.
Positive dynamics also for Barça.
After his worrying draw against the promoted Cadiz (1-1), Ronald Koeman's players lined up four straight wins, for ten goals scored and zero conceded, including a comeback against Sevilla FC in the Copa del Rey (3-0 ap, after a 0-2 loss in the first leg).
"It gave us a lot of confidence, but you can't compare a 2-0 away loss in the first leg with a 4-1 loss at home," warns Koeman.
It is indeed not the same.
The Catalans also took the three points against Elche (3-0), in Seville (2-0) and on the field of Osasuna (2-0) in the league from Paris.
Enough to score second in the La Liga standings, with two points less (but one game more) than leaders Atlético Madrid.
PSG are also second in L1.
Note that Barça has a new president on Sunday, Joan Laporta.

What history between PSG and Barça?
The story between PSG and Barcelona did not start with the comeback on March 8, 2017. Far from it… This 6-1 of disastrous memory in Paris represented the 11th duel between the two teams, including ten in C1 and one in the final of the now defunct Cup, in 1997 (1-0 for Barça).
It started in 1995, with Luis Fernandez's players qualifying against Johan Cruyff's Barça for the semi-finals (1-1, 2-1).
In total, Barcelona have won five of their 12 encounters, against four Parisian successes and three draws.
And at the Park?
Three Parisian victories, a draw and a success for Barça.
Note that the Catalan giant remains on 13 consecutive qualifications for the quarterfinals of C1.
End of series ?
PSG Barca, it's not just the comeback.

Who will be suspended from the next match in the event of a card?
As on the first leg, Parisians Leo Paredes and Marco Verratti will be under suspension for the next PSG European match in the event of a card.
Both players had managed to avoid the rusk at Camp Nou.
It would be better, especially as regards the "little Owl", more essential than ever in its new positioning higher on the ground, freer and closer to the zone of truth.
Note that no Barcelona player would be suspended in the event of a warning in Wednesday's meeting.
