‘Barca-PSG a beautiful prospect’

Carlo Ancelotti is looking forward to having his Paris Saint-Germain outfit face up to Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The French have been paired with the Catalans in this year’s last eight for a test that their Coach describes as ‘a beautiful prospect’.

“It will be a good test, but it's a beautiful prospect. We're happy to get Barcelona,” reflected Ancelotti today.

“We know it will be very tough. Alongside Real Madrid, Barcelona are the favourites to lift the trophy.

“We played them in a pre-season friendly [a 2-2 draw]. It was a good game but it will be a different atmosphere this time.

“Barcelona have experience, confidence. We'll play to our strengths.”
