After clinching a narrow 1-0 victory against Cadiz last night, Barcelona are now turning its attention back to the UEFA Champions League.

The team is gearing up for the crucial second-leg clash against Paris Saint-Germain, following their 3-2 triumph in the first leg.

Five players risking suspension in semis

Barcelona’s strategy for the upcoming match is expected to prioritize defensive solidity, as even a draw would be sufficient to secure a coveted spot in the semifinals.

However, they must exercise caution due to the precarious situation of five key players who risk suspension in the hypothetical semifinals.

The players in question are Frenkie de Jong, Ferran Torres, Joao Felix, Ronald Araujo and Lamine Yamal.

Frenkie de Jong, Ferran Torres, Joao Felix, Ronald Araujo, and Lamine Yamal are all walking the disciplinary tightrope, having accumulated two yellow cards each in the Champions League this season.

Another booking in the PSG encounter could render them unavailable for the first leg of the semifinals against either Atletico Madrid or Borussia Dortmund, should Barcelona progress.

With Andreas Christensen and Sergi Roberto already sidelined for the second leg due to suspension, the stakes are high for these players.

Keeping that in mind, it’s imperative for these five players to tread cautiously, as avoiding a yellow card in the upcoming fixture would reset the disciplinary count, providing a reprieve from booking-related suspension.
