Paris St-Germain stunned Barcelona with a 4-0 victory, leaving Barcelona in danger of failing to reach the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in a decade.

Di Maria came in with the opener with a curled free-kick. Julian Draxler with the second, and followed up by another goal from Di Maria. Edinson Cavani finished strong with a fourth.

The Messi-Suarez-Neymar trio had a lackluster performance, lacking any effort of note.

This leaves Luis Enrique’s side with a gargantuan task of staying in the competition when they host PSG for the 2nd leg on March 8.

No side has managed to overturn a 4-goal first-leg deficit in the history of the Champions League.

SCORELINE 

Paris Saint Germain

  • Di María (18′minutes, 55′minutes)
  • Draxler (40′minutes)
  • Cavani (71′minutes)
