It was coming. Luis Enrique's team suffered a tremendous defeat in Paris in the first leg of the Champions League round of sixteen. 4-0 and it could have been more if Ter Stegen hadn't been inspired in the first half saving many shots from the PSG attackers.
PSG were better in attitude, better in the style of play, they showed more effort... they did everything better. Di Maria scored the opener with a free-kick. Draxler scored the second before half time after a great assist by Verratti. Di Maria again with an outstanding goal scored the third and Edinson Cavani finished the job with the fourth one.
Maybe Neymar was the only Barcelona player to try it a little bit. André Gomes was the one chosen to share the midfield with Busquets and Iniesta, and maybe it wasn't the best election.
Sergio Busquets said post-match that PSG planned the match better, played better and were even better physically.
Now Barcelona need to try to overcome a very difficult result in the second leg at Camp Nou.
