Barcelona face a monumental challenge in having to overcome a heavy defeat in the first leg against PSG but the Spanish giants have famously done it before.

Despite Barcelona's massive appeal, PSG have managed to overcome them in terms of commercial income with revenue of €451.6 million in 2018/19 to their €339.1 million last season.

PSG spend considerably less than Barcelona on wages, with a total bill of €370.9 million compared to €541.9 million.
