Barcelona vs PSG LIVE: Champions League score and updates as Dembele closes gap after Raphinha goal – The Independent


Write them at your own risk – Haaland, Mbappe and Bellingham will play at UCL, says Ancelotti

Barcelona host Paris Saint-Germain with a place in the Champions League semi-finals on the line after a thrilling first leg in France last week. Barcelona will take a one-goal lead heading into the quarter-final second leg after Andreas Christensen’s header completed a remarkable 3-2 win in Paris.

It was a night to forget for Kylian Mbappe, but the PSG striker scored a stunning hat-trick at the Camp Nou during his previous visit to Barcelona three years ago and the French star will need to be back at his best if the visitors want to keep their Champions League dream alive.

It has been five years since Barcelona last reached the Champions League semi-finals, but Xavi will look to finish the job against former boss Luis Enrique when he returns to Spain. Barcelona are unbeaten in all competitions since Xavi announced he would leave the club at the end of the season.

PSG were the better team and got the deserved equalizer after 40 minutes after Dembélé struck at the far post.

PSG equalizes that evening and is only one down in total. We can’t say they don’t deserve that.
