The Argentine forward, became La Liga’s all-time leading marksman on Saturday with a hat-trick in the 5-1 win over Sevilla, needs just one more goal to eclipse Raul’s record of 71.
The forward drew level with the Real Madrid legend last time out thanks to a brace in the 2-0 win over Ajax in the Amsterdam Arena and with Ronaldo breathing down his neck just one goal behind there is no time for complicacy.
The Catalan side have already secured their place in the next round however with PSG currently a point ahead of them in the table there is still a lot to play for.
Luis Enrique’s side could go top of the pile should PSG slip up at home to Ajax however given the Paris’ side strong form in the Parc des Princes that would appear unlikely.
Would does appear likely however is a winner takes all showdown at the Nou Camp in 2 weeks if both teams win on Tuesday.
Barcelona appear to be coming back into form if their win over Seville is anything to go by. Back to back defeats to Real Madrid and Celta Vigo had raised doubts over the rein of Enrique however those fears over his future have rescinded after three straight wins.
Andres Iniesta and Jeremy Mathieu (calf) are both doubts for Barcelona while Thomas Vermaelen is unlikely to play despite finally resuming training after an injury hit start to life with the club.
APOEL for their part may be bottom of the group but they have showed they can challenge the big boys. The team, currently unbeaten in the Cypriot league, drew at home to Ajax and have lost by one goal margins at home and away to PSG.
When the two sides met at the Nou Camp, Gerard Pigue goal was the difference between them.
