PSG Thrash Barcelona 4-1 To Reach Champions League Semis

Paris Saint-Germain produced a stunning comeback on a thrilling night in the Champions League to dump Barcelona out at the quarter-final stage 6-4 on aggregate.

After the first leg Barcelona brought a one-goal lead into the match and opened the scoring in the night with a fortuitous touch from Raphinha beating Gianluigi Donnarumma at the near post.

PSG looked to get back in the game and were gifted the initiative after a mistimed challenge from Ronald Araujo saw the defender sent off inside the first half and hour.

That red card changed the momentum of the match and Ousmane Dembele took advantage to pull PSG level on the night before a long-ranged strike from Vitinha equalised the aggregate scores.

The visitors then won a penalty in the second half with Kylian Mbappe calmly slotting in home before putting the icing on the cake with Paris’ fourth in 89th minute.
