Paris Saint-Germain defeated Barcelona 3-2 in their Group F encounter in the Champions League in Paris on Tuesday. The Catalans had the bulk of the early possession bossing the game from the get go. However the French side found their feet and had a half chance when Sergio Busquets lost possession just outside his box which led to a Thiago Motta chance that eventually went wide.
Laurent Blanc’s men did not miss their next chance when the ball found David Luiz and he made no mistake slotting it into the bottom corner past Marc-Andre Ter Segen. Lionel Messi and company did not wait too long to get an equaliser as the Argentine international netted his 68th Champions League goal two minutes later. With the scores level both sides exchanged possession as well as goal scoring opportunities.
It was the home side who capatilised on a chance through Marco Veratti as they took a 2-1 lead into the half-time break. After the break PSG picked up where they left off extending their lead even further as Blaise Matuidi latched on to a sensational pass from Lucas to beat the young German in the Barcelona goal. The Spanish giants were not going to give up that easily and cut their opponents lead down to just one as Neymar found the back of the net with the score on 3-2.
Les Rouge-et-Bleu put in an amazing defensive performance in the final minutes to keep the four time Champions League winners at bay as they ran out 3-2 victors to top Group F ahead of the Blaugrana by a point.
