The French press praises the level of PSG despite their elimination before Barça, their team was winning the game for 20 minutes and disputed the match “as equals”.
Barcelona will play the semifinals of the Champions League for the sixth consecutive year, something that no team has done before. The Barça maybe doesn’t remember an eliminatory so suffered since the semi-final match against Chelsea in 2009. The PSG lacks a big list of triumphs, but it has a fearsome team of players that has put the catalans under a lot of strain. They kept them out of the Campions League for twenty minutes with a goal from Javier Pastore at minute 5 of the second half.
Until Messi appeared and things changed, his presence was more a psychological than a soccer hit, but since he touched the Camp Nou grass floor, it was all for Barcelona, nothing could make the team of Ibrahimovic, who retired from the highest club competition after a wonderful play of the best player in the world that dribbled, marked the pass to Villa who sorted the defense of the PSG so that Pedro could score with an excellent definition.
The goal of the equality was enough to classify the Barça after the two goals achieved in Paris at the Parc des Princes. Now the ust have to wait for the draw for semifinals to be held on Friday, in which Messi expects to be fully recovered.
