By: Manu Tournoux

The Champions League draw has delivered its verdict for the quarter-finals and semi-finals. If the poster will undoubtedly be a new clash between Manchester City and Real Madrid, destiny offers us a new confrontation between FC Barcelona and PSG. This is quite simply the 6th time that the two teams have faced each other since QSI took over the French club in 2011. A classic that inevitably brings back memories.

We think above all of 2013 with PSG, a newcomer on the continental scene, which made the great Barça tremble until the end, of 2017 with the famous comeback, which has become a registered trademark in the minds of supporters, or even the Mbappé’s hat-trick in 2021 at the Nou Camp. Despite his situation, the striker will once again be the main asset of his club. “He’s an extraordinary player but it’s the whole team that is strong”warns Rafa Yuste, Barcelona vice-president to Canal+.

The manager expects a new epic duel between two teams who are not the favorites of the competition. “No one is favorite, it’s 50-50. We have a lot of respect for this rival. We will play hard and with great desirehe assures before continuing. PSG is a great team with a great coach who we know well because he is a friend. This is a world-class team. We will be treated to two spectacular matches given the form of PSG and Barça.

Rafa Yuste is visibly delighted to find the Spanish technician, the same one who was on the Catalan bench during the comeback. “He is a friend and a great person. He has the DNA of Barça, he won a lot of titles with us. He’s a great coach, he knows everything about us and I’ll say hello to him.”, he had fun while paying attention. This could be an advantage. “Life is made up of little secrets that we won’t reveal (laughs).” Response on April 9 and 10, then April 16 and 17, 2024.
