The Champions League resumed on Tuesday with two squatters in the eighth finals. Follow the duels Paris Saint-Germain-FC Barcelona and RB Leipzig-Liverpool in this live blog.
For Barcelona trainer Ronald Koeman a hard job awaits in the knock out phase, with last year‘s losing finalist as opponent. The windfall for the Catalans is the absence of Neymar at PSG. The Brazilian is standing by the side for a month with an injury.
Koeman works confidently towards the game against the French. In the league, Barcelona is starting to play better and better: of the last twelve duels, ten were won and two were drawn. The backlog on top runner Atlético Madrid, with a match more played, is eight points. PSG is second in the French competition, at one point behind Lille.
The other eighth final match on Tuesday is between RB Leipzig and Liverpool, which still plays without Virgil van Dijk. Liverpool’s injury problems have been clearly visible in recent weeks: the last three Premier League duels have been lost.
