Barcelona take on Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg quarter-final of the Champions League at the Nou Camp as they look to finish the job, following a convincing 3-1 victory over the Ligue 1 side in the first leg.

The Catalans are now the favourites to progress to the final four of the competition, following their convincing 3-1 victory at PSG in the first leg of the quarter-final.

The Ligue 1 side were completely outclassed in their own backyard by Barcelona, who were able to record a relatively easy victory.

Neymar broke the deadlock in the 18th minute before Luis Suarez netted two goals in a span of 13 minutes in the latter stages of the game.

PSG in the end were only able to net a late consolation via an own goal through Jérémy Mathieu .

Following their dominant performance in the first leg, Barcelona only need a draw at the Nou Camp in order to progress to the semi-final of the Champions League.

But Barcelona boss Luis Enrique insists that his side will be looking for nothing less than a win in the second leg on Tuesday.

"I only think in terms of winning. I understand a victory is much better than a draw," the Spaniard told UEFA's official website. "We will have to work hard at times tomorrow, like we did in Paris, and at other moments we will feel stronger. I don't want to settle for a draw because I only think about winning."

Zlatan Ibrahimović and Marco Verratti, who were both unavailable in the first leg due to a suspension and injury respectively, will be available for the second leg at the Nou Camp.

And Enrique despite admitting that the two players especially Ibrahimović will be a threat on Tuesday, insists that he is not worried.

"Ibrahimović is back, but that doesn't change matters because PSG will play in the same style," he added. "Ibra and Verratti are very important players for them, so their quality will, of course, increase."

Meanwhile, PSG boss Laurant Blanc admits that they have a very difficult task ahead of them to beat Barcelona at home, that also by a considerable margin.

Despite insisting that his side will be getting "plenty of chances" to score on Tuesday, he admits that his side have "small chance" of winning considering the game is at Barcelona's home ground.

"We all know the task is extremely difficult. Our problem is that we have to score goals, though I do believe we will have plenty of chances," Blanc told UEFA's official website. "We have a small chance of winning but it's practically impossible not to concede against Barcelona."

Still the Frenchman insists that PSG have "nothing to lose" and he is certain his side will be better on Tuesday now that Ibrahimović has returned.

"We have nothing to lose and Ibra likes that kind of match. He has been training every day and even if he's not playing, he's in great form at the moment," he added.
