Did you know that The only previous Champions League encounter between PSG and Barcelona was in the quarter-finals in March 1995. The French club won 3-2 on aggregate.

Any comments or predictions?

PSG will probably do the same as Milan and grab a win here, problem being I don't think we will turn it round this time.
I think Beckhams long range passing will cause us problems on the counter with the amount of space we will leave so hopefully he wont be afforded any time on the ball.
I just hope the gambles on Xavi and Alba pay off as if either breaks down we could be in big trouble.

FT

PSG 2-2 Barcelona
0-1 Messi 38’
1-1 Ibrahimovic 79’
1-2 Xavi 89’ (pen.)
2-2 Matuidi 90+4

An injury time equaliser by Matuidi earns PSG a 2-2 draw at the Parc des Princes.

Any comments on tonights result?

Should Ibra's goal have been ruled out as offside and was it a penalty or did Sanchez dive again?

Yes Ibra was offside and there was definite contact on Sanchez so it was a pen.
The guys behind the goal are literally just there for show I think, theres no way he didn't see Alba and Masch clash heads six yards from him.
That said same old probs, cant defend the ball in the air and we were punished albeit helped with a little luck with the deflection.
Given how poor we played and still had chances to score I should be confident but the loss of Messi and inability to defend makes me more than a little pessimistic. Hopefully Villa gets to play through the middle instead of Cesc if Messi doesn't recover.

Advantage is still on Barca's side, as they'll only need a 0-0 or 1-1 at home...
