Unreal match played footballers of PSG, who in the first leg match of the Champions league Round of 16, at the Parc des Princes completely humbled Barcelona and with 4: 0 caused the Catalans one of the worst defeats in their history.
Angel di Maria opened the scoring in the 18th minute, while Julian Draxler sealed the first half score, 2-0 in the 40th minute. The Argentinian winger, di Maria, scored his second in the 55th minute and in the 73rd minute, Edinson Cavani completed the Catalans misery by smashing fourth goal behind ter Stegen.
“PSG was a superior team on the pitch. They had a lot more chances, they were playing better, attacked and the result is a true reflection of the whole match. We did not expect such a heavy defeat, we are shocked, even though we know that this is the opponent who can compete to us.”
“But we have not yet fallen, there’s still a slight hope, although it will be very difficult, ” concluded the Catalans coach Luis Enrique.”
PSG are the sixth side in history to score four goals in a Champions league match vs Barcelona (Milan, Dynamo Kiev, Valencia, Chelsea, Bayern Munich). And that the Catalans side awaits almost an impossible mission in the second leg, suggest the fact that no team in the Champions League have managed to compensate four goals defeat in the first leg of the knockout stage in the Champions league competition.
