    The UEFA Champions League quarterfinal return legs begin on Tuesday, with Paris Saint-Germain taking on Barcelona and Dortmund facing Atletico de Madrid.

    Raphinha scored twice in the first leg, helping Barcelona defeat Paris 3-2 at Parc des Princes in a five-goal thriller.

    The two sides will face off in Barcelona’s home stadium, Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys, which seats 60,000 people.

    The match, scheduled to begin at 1900GMT, will be officiated by Istvan Kovacs from Romania.

    At a press conference, Paris Saint-Germain coach Luis Enrique stated Barcelona can play long balls to Lewandowski to put pressure on Paris.

    “We fall and get back up. That is what high-level sport is all about. An athlete should be aware of this. It’s difficult, but you need to accept it. “After two days, the players were doing well in training,” he said.

    Barcelona coach Xavi Hernández stated that the PSG match is about footballers, not coaches.

    “Let us hope they are inspired; it will be up to them. Montjuic needs to be a pressure cooker; we need fans. There will be terrible periods, when Paris will make us suffer,” he stated.

    Another Tuesday game will see Atletico Madrid travel to Borussia Dortmund with a 2-1 aggregate advantage in the tie.

    The game will commence at 1900GMT at the VB Stadion Dortmund.

    The final for 2023-24 will be held on June 1 at Wembley Stadium in London.

    Wembley venue, also known as the “Home of Football,” has held seven previous European Cup finals, the most of any venue.
