Champions League: PSG Thrash Barcelona At Camp NouFeatured, Latest News, Sports Wednesday, February 17th, 2021
(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – PSG’s spectacular performance at Camp Nou dimmed the hope of Barcelona as the French club thrashed the Messi led team 4-1 in their round-of-16 matchup on Tuesday.
Kylian Mbappé netted thrice in 32nd, 65th and 85th minute despite Lionel Messi scoring the opening goal of the match with a penalty.
It was the team’s first meeting of the team since Barcelona erased a 4-0 deficit by winning the second leg 6-1 at the same stage of the competition four years ago.
The Barcelona team was thoroughly outplayed at home, even with PSG missing Brazil star Neymar, and now has to attempt a comeback in Paris instead.
“It was a very important match for us, We wanted to come here and win. We did that in style. Tonight was magnificent, but we haven’t won anything yet.” – Mbappé said.
