Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti calls on his side to show courage and press the action against Barcelona at Camp Nou tomorrow.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has urged his side to show courage and believe that they are capable of beating Barcelona at Camp Nou tomorrow night.

A pulsating first leg has left a tight Champions League quarter-final tie locked at 2-2, with Barca holding a slight edge thanks to two away goals at the Parc des Princes.

Ancelotti has insisted that the likely absence of Lionel Messi changes little for his side as they chase a place in the last four.

He told RMC Sport: "We have to defend, but our goal is not only to defend, we must also show courage.

"With or without Messi, it is the same for us. To reach the semi-finals, we still have to win."

PSG are without French international Blaise Matuidi for the trip to Spain, with the midfielder suspended following a yellow card picked up in the first leg.
