Barcelona vs PSG preview
Barcelona will host PSG at Camp Nou. The Catalan giants have had an upper hand in the tie, more so the last time when they overturned a first-leg 4-0 deficit to win the tie 6-1. But there have been unprecedented changes since the remontada. Neymar Jr, one of the top performers back then, is now at PSG. But he is unavailable for the clash following an injury in the French Cup last week.
Barcelona have appeared to regain their top form in LaLiga, having tumbled under manager Ronald Koeman initially. Nevertheless, the Catalan giants have displayed a dominant performance in the Champions League group stage fixtures until their 0-3 defeat against Juventus at home.

RB Leipzig vs Liverpool preview
RB Leipzig will not be able to enjoy home support when they take on Liverpool. The Premier League champions were banned from visiting Germany amid the coronavirus crisis and hence the game has been shifted to the Puskas Arena in Hungary. Julian Nagelsmann’s men have been in top form this season, particularly their exploits in Bundesliga being worthy of massive praise. In their previous Champions League fixture, the German giants defeated Manchester United 3-2 to knock them out.
Liverpool have had a nightmare this season with several injuries posing a deterrent in their campaign. The Reds have lost out the previous three games and are enduring a tough time on the field. In their final group stage clash, Liverpool were held 1-1 by Midtjylland and would look to make amends for the recent slump in form.
