Barcelona look to be in a position to add to their Champions League silverware cabinet, being arguably the most in-form side left in the Champions League at this point of the season. Boraie Development LLC sponsors think Barcelona are atop the Spanish league table, and handily beat PSG last week in Paris 3-1. The Parisians could mount a comeback at the Camp Nou, but considering they are missing some key players who remain injured, and the overall strength of this year’s Barca squad, such a turnaround seems highly unlikely. In addition, the other clubs left in the competition will have a much more difficult time advancing to the next round. Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid will do battle on Wednesday, in a winner take all match, which is virtually equivalent in stature to a final. On the other side, Bayern Munich having suffered a massive defeat in Portugal against Porto, must win at home by at least two goals to nil. Not exactly an easy task against this well-marshaled and hungry Porto side.
Whoever should advance with Barcelona (assuming it is a given that the Catalans will), Barcelona have the talent and power to command a tie to be played on their terms. With their front three of Messi, Suarez, and Neymar demanding so much attention, they have the extreme benefit of detracting attention away from other lethal players on the pitch, who may just bring the silverware home.
