The Champions League quarter final match played between Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain at Parc des Princes on Tuesday has ended in a draw. Both the teams scored a couple of goals each.
This was the first leg. These two teams will again face each other in the return leg which is scheduled to take place at Camp Nou on 10th of April.

Barca was ahead in the match for a long time. They got the lead with Lionel Messi’s goal in the 38th minute and they maintained that lead for 40 odd minutes.

In the last few minutes of the match, some dramatic things happened. In the 79th minute, Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the equalizer for PSG with a fine header. That goal gave the home supporters a big relief.

However, the happiness of PSG supporters didn’t last long. A penalty was awarded to Barca in the 89th minute and Xavi was asked to take the shot. He blasted the ball into the right hand corner of the net and gave Barca the lead again.

The last twist in the game still had to come. In the 4th minute of the stoppage time, the score became 2-2. The scorer was Blaise Matuidi, but, the hard work was done by Ibrahimovic. After a brilliant run, he passed the ball to Matuidi who finished it with a powerful shot.

The whole stadium erupted after that goal. There were wonderful scenes out there. The home supporters as well as the PSG players were jumping in joy, while, there was clear disappointment on the faces of Barca players. They would have been thinking that they had this one in the bag.
This was a great game of football. Both the teams played some high quality football and the spectators got their money’s worth.

Barcelona’s next match will be a La Liga encounter against Mallorca at Camp Nou on 6th of April.
