The Champions League meeting of Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain has been boiled down to a showdown between Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe – at least according to the Spanish newspapers.

All the sports dailies feature the two superstars on their front covers on Tuesday morning, ahead of the round of 16, first leg clash at the Nou Camp.

It may be a little unfair on everyone else involved to boil such a titanic contest down to just two men but that’s certainly the favoured narrative as a legend who has won the Champions League four times faces a young pretender dreaming of a first triumph.
