Barcelona try to claw back from 4-0 Champion's League loss

Wednesday, March 8, 2017 - 11:45

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has faith that his side can claw back a massive 4-0 aggregate deficit in their Champions League tie with Paris St-Germain.

The Catalan giants capitulated in the first leg in Paris after goals from Julian Draxler, Edinson Cavani and a brace from Angel di Maria.

Barca host the French champions on Wednesday in the last 16 second leg – but since the debacle, they have won their last two games 6-1 and 5-0.

But if they do manage to achieve it, they will be the first team in Champions League history to come from four goals down and go through.

The Barca boss announced he was leaving at the end of the season after the 6-1 thrashing of Sporting Gijon – and they will have a mountain to climb if they are to stay in the Champions League.

Barca need to score at least four goals to have any chance of going through, Luis Enrique will more than likely go very attacking.

He even said: “We are going to risk a lot.”

He is expected to continue the 3-4-3 formation, with Enrique suggesting Andres Iniesta will be in the side, perhaps at the expense of Ivan Rakitic, Sergi Roberto or Rafinha.

Javier Mascherano could also come into the team at the expense of Jordi Alba or Samuel Umtiti but they are without Aleix Vidal and Jeremy Mathieu for this game.
