Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Monaco and Real Madrid are all in the running for the most prestigious club trophy.
Marco Verratti has given his views on the tournament and surprisingly back Ligue 1 rivals, Monaco, to win.
PSG were knocked out of the competition in the last 16, and Verratti is happy a French team are still in the title race.
Marco Verratti backs Monaco to win Champions League
The Italian said via Squawka: “Monaco are having a great League season, there’s nothing to say about that. They’re also doing really well in the Champions League.”
“We’re happy for them, because it’s not easy for a French club to get to the semis, I hope they get to the final and – why not? – win the trophy.
“They’re having a fantastic season, particularly in Ligue 1, it’s not easy to set this kind of pace. We’ve won almost all of our matches in 2017 but it’s really difficult to catch Monaco.
“If we can’t win the League we’ll congratulate Monaco and think about next season.
“Do I still believe in the title after Monaco won at Lyon? I don’t know… the way Lyon played was a bit… it wasn’t very normal.
“Sometimes I saw the Lyon players laughing on the pitch, that wasn’t the case when we met them. But I think if the Monégasques win the title in the end they’ll have deserved it.”
Verratti’s side have won their last four Ligue 1 titles. And Unai Emery’s men are looking to become the first team since Lyon to win five on the bounce.
