Deco: PSG will make things difficult for Barcelona
Former Barcelona midfielder Deco believes Paris Saint-Germain will make things difficult for his former club in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The Spanish giants suffered a shock 2-0 defeat at the San Siro but managed to turn things around with a convincing 4-0 victory during the second leg of their tie with Milan.
Meanwhile, Carlo Anceotti's PSG reached the last eight at the first time of asking with a 3-2 aggregate win over Valencia.
Deco told ESPN Brasil: "I've seen some [of their] games and I think PSG, despite being a team in formation, will make things difficult for Barca. [Ancelotti] has experience in the Champions League.
"[Barcelona] have long played together, while PSG are a team that are still under construction.
"Of course, one can not underestimate the French because they have quality players like [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic or Thiago [Silva], a very strong defence and a quality midfield."
The Fluminense playmaker also spoke about the criticism the Blaugrana received after losing the first leg of their last-16 clash to the Rossoneri.
He added: "Any team who play like Barca create very high expectations and if they stumble a bit, [the reception] usually appears critical.
"Keep in mind that this team are very young. [Lionel] Messi, their big star, is only 25 years old and they have also been without a coach, something which affects [them] whether you want it to or not.
"So it's normal to have a dip, but this does not mean that the team are finished."
