Team News: Barcelona boss Luis Enrique opts against all-out attack

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique names a familiar starting lineup for the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie with Paris Saint-Germain.

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has selected a familiar starting lineup for the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie with Paris Saint-Germain.

The Catalan giants find themselves facing a 4-0 deficit at Camp Nou, but Enrique has opted against using more attacking players in an attempt to get themselves back into the tie.

Neymar, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez all feature, but they will be supported by the likes of Andres Iniesta and Ivan Rakitic.

In terms of the visitors, they are without the injured Angel di Maria this evening, opening up a spot for Lucas Moura in attacking midfield, but Adrien Rabiot has shaken off his recent injury issue.

Thiago Silva also returns to the side after missing PSG's famous 4-0 first-leg win, while Edinson Cavani - the scorer of seven goals in seven Champions League outings this term - once again leads the line.

Barcelona will have to create history by overcoming a four-goal deficit this evening, but they have scored 11 goals in their past two outings and conceded just two goals.

Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Rafinha, Pique, Mascherano, Umtiti, Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta, Neymar, Messi, Suarez
Subs: Cillessen, Turan, Alcacer, Alba, Digne, Sergi Roberto, Gomes

Paris Saint-Germain: Trapp, Meunier, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Kurzawa, Verratti, Matuidi, Rabiot, Draxler, Lucas, Cavani
Subs: Areola, Aurier, Kimpembe, Krychowiak, Pastore, Di Maria, Ben Arfa
