FULL-TIME PSG 4-0 BARCA! What a way to kick off the re-start of the Champions League campaign. Not in their wildest dreams would have Unai Emery thought this would be the result on the end of the day. Job half done still as the trip to the Nou Camp remains, but tonight they can celebrate
...
91' Neymar skies his free-kick from distance but not much blame should be placed on him. He has been Barca's only bright spot this game
...
89' Luis Enrique looks angry and dejected and he rightly should be. But PSG have exposed a weakness that has been evident for quite some time now since the departure of Puyol. 
...
86' Julian Draxler comes off and Pastore comes on
...
83' UMTITI HITS THE BAR! The closest they have come so far! It took them 83 minutes to muster such a great opportunity as Pique heads back into goal from the corner and the Frenchman could not head it into the open net from close ranger
...
82' And the stats keep coming:

2 - Angel Di Maria is the only player to have scored two goals from outside the box in a #UCL game vs Barcelona (since 2003/04). via Opta
...
81' Even if Barcelona can get one goal here it would be more than they deserve based on this performance. It would give them a glimmer of hope
...
79' Neymar has a shot or a half volley from a Jordi Alba cut back but he skews it wide. Probably Barca's only clear-cut chance of the second half
...
77' I can't seem to pick out even a single Barcelona player who has really impressed tonight! Neymar is probably the only one to have made some sort of effort in rattling the PSG defence and even then it's nitpicking
...
Barcelona haven't gone out at the Round of 16 stage of the ChampionsLeague since beaten by Liverpool in 2006-07 via Sky Sports Statto
...
75' Brace yourselves some stats coming your way:

1999 - Ángel Di María is the 2nd Argentine player to score a brace against Barcelona in #UCL (Fiorentina's Abel Balbo in 1999). Sniper. Via Opta
...
72' Meunier literally runs the length of the field from his right back position and then weights a lovely pass for Cavani who powers it home at the near post to make it 4! Well Well Well! We were just mentioning Bayern, weren't we?
...
72' IT'S 4!!! CAVANI SCORES!!! WHAT A STORY THIS IS!! BARCELONA HUMILIATED!!!
...
66' We thought the inexperienced PSG defence won't be able to cope but it's the reverse!
...
62' A quick break from PSG could have ended in another goal but once again Rabiot with a disappointing cross
...
61' Di Maria comes off to a standing ovation as Lucas Moura takes his place
...
60' Flashbacks of their humiliation at the Allianz arena a few years ago must be running through some of the players minds now!
...
59' Rafinha comes on for the terrible Gomes.
...
58' CAVANI almost makes it 4!! Great ball in but the striker just can't get a touch on it to guide it into the net!
...
57' So.. is this game over? In the first leg. You can never count Barca out at the Camp Nou but with this scoreline it could be beyond them!
...
56' The Barca defence just stood still as Di Maria weaved his way through a couple of players without trying and then curls one beautifully with his left foot right into the top left corner! Stunning strike!
...
55' DI MARIA SCORES AGAIN!!! IT'S 3-0!!! WOW! JUST WOW! THAT IS SOME STRIKE!!
...
54' Cavani has been unusually quiet this game when compared to his teammates. PSG have created chance after chance but their central striker has not had too many opportunities so far
...
53' Draxler and Di Maria have caused Havoc on the wings. Roberto has had a hard time re-adjusting to that right-back spot
...
51' Messi is dropping deeper to try and influence the game more
...
49' So far it's the same old story! PSG dispossessing Barca, then Rabiot putting a cross in but Cavani heads over! How Barca are still in this game is a mystery!
...
47' And instantly Barca on the backfoot! Rabiot gets behind the defensive line and crosses but it's too strong for any player in Blue to get a head to it! Could have 3-0!
...
We are back underway!
...
The players are back in the tunnel! Can Barcelona stage a comeback? They did not really threaten the PSG defence at all in the first half! Once again the onus is on one man - Leo Messi
...
HALF TIME PSG 2-0 Barca
...
45' The corner comes off Cavani and it is a goal kick
...
45' It's not over yet as Di Maria wins a corner! Barca have to see this out or the tie itself could be out of reach for them!
...
43' What will be Luis Enrique's half time team talk? Barca have been second best by a long mile! Only a couple of shots on target despite dominating posession
...
41' Barca are unable to deal with the press and PSG win it back in the Catalan's half! Veratti moves forward into the space, pulls players into him opening up an avenue for the German and Veratti finds him with a beautiful pass. Draxler puts his right foot through the ball as it lands in the far corner! Problems Problems for Barca
...
40' DRAXLER SCORES!!!! IT'S 2-0!! BARCA'S DEFENCE CAPITULATES AGAIN!!!
...
38' PSG are happy to sit back soak up the Barca pressure and hit them on the counter. So far Emery's plan has worked to perfection
...
34' DRAXLER ALMOST MAKES IT 2 BUT TER STEGEN TO THE RESCUE AGAIN! Just stretched out his right hand to divert his shot for a corner!
...
33' Gomes booked by the ref for a foul on Draxler. He already had a warning and now the ref's had enough
...
31' A lot of sideways passing from Barca so far as they are unable to break down this very well drilled PSG side
...
28' TRAPP SAVES FROM GOMES!! First real chance for Barca as Neymar's run and pass puts the Portuguese through on goal but Trapp makes himself big and diverts his shot into the side netting!
