Digne backs Barcelona's 'MSN' to outgun PSG once more
The Blaugrana will face Paris Saint-Germain, one of the best teams in the world, in the Round of 16.
PSG finished second in Group A behind Arsenal following their draw against Ludogorets in the final group stage fixture.
Despite an outlay totalling hundreds of millions of euros, PSG are yet to break the glass ceiling of the last eight in the Champions League since owners Qatar Sports Investments took control of the club six years ago.
Paris are now second in Ligue 1 behind an impressive Monaco and enjoyed a confident 3-0 win away to Bordeaux on Friday night, but it is in Europe where Emery will eventually be judged.
After a hard start to the season, punctuated by four league defeats away from home, PSG's players are thriving under Emery and the side is undefeated in the last 11 games - the same as Barcelona.
Meanwhile, the Parisians' team coach, Unai Emery, is of the opinion that the players must be focused to get the best from the match. "My team is PSG - I love PSG".

He also used several hashtags indicating he wishes the team simply let him retire and that he does not want to play anywhere else. After the NFC Championship Game, Shields said, "It's just like some days tough headaches, some days it's mild". "It varies.
When it won the Champions League in 2015, Barcelona swatted PSG aside in the quarterfinals, winning home and away for a resounding 5-1 win that would have been even heavier had the Catalan side not eased up in the second half of the return leg in Spain.
Their latest 11 outings in all competitions have yielded ten wins and one draw, while Emery, for all his early travails, is yet to be beaten on home soil since replacing Laurent Blanc.
The hosts were on the front foot in the opening 15 minutes, as Barcelona struggled to get out of their own half, while Marc-Andre Ter Stegen pulled off a fine save to deny Blaise Matuidi.
Emery struck a bullish note as he looked ahead to Tuesday's clash: "We have the quality to beat Barcelona".
Barcelona travel to France buoyed by a crushing 6-0 win at Alaves in La Liga at the weekend in which Luis Suarez scored twice.
A spate of injury problems have pegged Javier Mascherano back this season, who has only managed to start 20 games in all competitions this season.
PSG v Barcelona will also air live on BT Showcase on Freeview channel 59 and Virgin Media channel 548. We have good memories of this ground and this team. I think they are more structured now. PSG could have hit double figures as they bombed forward in a style similar to what we are used to seeing from their opponents on the night.
