Luis Enrique assessed the fact that FC Barcelona will face PSG in Champions League quarterfinals after discovering it in the draw held this midday in Switzerland: "They're very dangerous and we have a lot of respect for them. We have experience from the group stage, with a win and a defeat. After beating Chelsea they showed they're a strong candidate to win the competition."

The coach won't be able to count on Dani Alves, sanctioned for yellow card accumulation, but PSG also have two important lows: "The absence of Ibrahimovic and Veratti is important but they have other players who are equally dangerous," stressed Luis Enrique

The first leg match will be played on April 15 and the second leg on April 21 at Camp Nou. "Having the return leg at home is big. It's important to get a good result in Paris and try to qualify for the semifinals in front of our fans," admitted the coach.
