Neymar Fires Barca Into UCL Semis

UEFA Champions League

Result: FC Barcelona 2-0 Paris Saint-Germain

Date: 21 April 2015

Venue: Camp Nou

FC Barcelona booked their spot in the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League after beating Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 at the Camp Nou on Tuesday evening.

Barcelona went ahead in the 13th minute, when Andres Iniesta skipped past three defenders, before playing in Neymar, who rounded Sigiru and slotted into an empty net.

Lionel Messi was presented with an opportunity to increase Barcelona's advantage in the 23rd minute, but the Argentine volleyed over from close range after being teed up by Luis Suarez.

Salvatore Sirigu came to PSG's rescue a minute later, as he did well to keep out Dani Alves' stinging effort from 20-yards out.

The home side continued to dominate and eventually increased their lead in the 34th when an un-marked Neymar headed home Dani Alves' cross for his second of the game.

Marc-André ter Stegen was called on upon for the first time in the 74th minute, as he got down well to keep out Zlatan Ibrahimovic's stinging effort from distance.

The visitors went close four minutes later when Edison Cavani fired into the side-netting, after a goal-mouth scramble.

PSG were presented with a chance in the 89th minute but Ezequiel Lavezzi could only fire an effort straight at Ter Stegen.

Luis Enrique's side move onto the last four having won the tie 5-1 on aggregate, while PSG are eliminated at the quarterfinal stage for the third straight season.
