Official: PSG starting XI to face Barcelona, Lucho makes surprise inclusion

Barcelona have made the trip to French capital Paris to take on PSG for the first-leg of the quarter-final tonight, with the hopes of finishing off the tie as soon as possible.

Luis Enrique has picked an interesting selection of XI for the game against Barcelona, making several changes to the side that drew 1-1 against Clermont Foot on the weekend.

There is one surprise inclusion in the team, with Marco Asensio playing as a right-winger today, while Ousmane Dembele has been shifted to the left side of the front-three. Kylian Mbappe starts as a striker on paper.

Kang-in Lee starts midfield, parterning Fabian Ruiz as an interior, while Vitinha is expected to shoulder most of the holding midfield burden. Although, this could form a 4-2-3-1, easily.

The central defence features Lucas Hernandez and Lucas Beraldo, with Nuno Mendes and Marquinhos flanking them on the left and right, respectively, while Gianluigi Donnarumma guards the goal.

Confirmed PSG XI: Donnarumma; Marquinhos, Hernandez, Beraldo, Mendes; Lee, Vithinha, Ruiz, Asensio, Mbappe, Dembele
