Paris Saint-Germain host Barcelona on Wednesday night in the first-leg of their Champions League quarter-final, and the Fan Park Crew decided to see what the a team would look like if they were combined.
The starting team is one filled with experience, with the youngest player being Barcelona’s Brazilian superstar, Neymar. PSG's Thiago Silva would be our obvious choice as captain, with Edison Cavani being selected ahead of Luis Suarez.
In midfield, Blaise Matuidi and Ivan Rakitic were chosen instead of Marco Verratti, Andres Iniesta, Xavi and Yohan Cabaye, as we feel that these two midfielders are currently the most in-form players.
Here is how the team would line-up:
Goalkeeper: Salvatore Sirigu (Paris Saint-Germain)
Left-back: Maxwell (Paris Saint-Germain)
Centre-back: Gerard Pique (Barcelona)
Centre-back: Thiago Silva (Paris Saint-Germain)
Right-back: Dani Alves (Barcelona)
Left-mid: Neymar (Barcelona)
Centre-mid: Blaise Matuidi (Paris Saint-Germain)
Centre-mid: Ivan Rakitic (Barcelona)
Right-mid: Javier Pastore (Paris Saint-Germain)
Left-striker: Lionel Messi (Barcelona)
Right-striker: Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint-Germain)
What changes would you make to our PSG and Barca combined XI?
