"The fact that they have changed staff, they are in full construction of a new project so we must give them time".

"Even though I am now in a good project and I feel at home, any player would play for Barcelona".

The other match tonight is also fascinating as you have PSG, in danger of possibly not winning the French title for the first time since 2012, up against a Barcelona team trailing Real Madrid at the top of La Liga.

However, much bigger challenges and prizes await with Barca in search of a second treble in three years.

Barcelona's Javier Mascherano will be missing off the back line because of injury, while Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal are also on the injury list. "Iniesta, [Lionel] Messi and Neymar create a move in a second".

Luis Enrique's side was destroyed by a PSG side playing with feverish determination, desperate to prove it belongs among Europe's elite after falling at the quarterfinals in the last four seasons.

"That's something that I just learnt about, that Thiago Silva may not be able to play", he said.

PSG is expected to hit the pitch with 4-3-3 formation. Attackers responsible to score against Barca are Lucas, Draxler and finally Cavani.

Thomas Meunier was allowed to carry the ball from half-way to the edge of the Barcelona box before slipping through Cavani, who smashed home past ter Stegen.

Stopping a Barcelona attack that has Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar in the lineup is hard enough, but when you have to do that without your best defender, it becomes a whole lot more difficult.

Subscribers to BT Sport - the only place showing Premier League, Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup football this season - can watch PSG v Barcelona online on the acclaimed enhanced video player.

Regardless of how Emery's work at PSG so far is viewed, he has undeniably achieved one major breakthrough in getting a tune out of Edinson Cavani, who is arguably in the best form of his life. David Luiz (50m), Thiago Silva (42m) and Marquinhos (31m) were all added to a squad of big-name signings that still required that extra bit of star dust to complete the picture. You should pay attention to Marco Verratti and Sergio Busquets duel as well.

The noise level at Parc des Princes reached deafening proportions as the home fans watched in nearly stunned disbelief as Barcelona cracked under waves of incessant pressure.
