Champions League Update : PSG 2-2 FC Barcelona
PSG's goals were scored by Ibrahimovic (79') and Matuidi (90 + 4') and Barcelona's goals were scored by Messi (38') and Xavi (pen 89').
Surprisingly, Spanish giant FC Barcelona was held in the entertaining 2-2 draw at Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League Quarter-Final first leg. PSG managed to stop Barcelona from winning, and came from behind to score two dramatic goals late in the match. Barcelona remains the favorite to reach the semi-final of the two clubs.
Barca superstar Lionel Messi suffered a hamstring injury before halftime as Barcelona failed to win its first leg away from home in a European knock-out match for the third time in a row.
Messi opened the scoring after 38 minutes of world-class action. El Caliente was injured just befor half-time and did not appear for the second half, having been replaced by Cesc Fabregas.
Messi has an unbelievable scoring record combined with a lack of injuries. He has scored 57 goals in 45 matches this season; this was his sixth consecutive scoring game - and he is now only 12 goals behind Champions League all-time scorer Raul.
Messi's last significant injury was in September 2010 when Atletico Madrid's Tomas Ujfalusi stamped on his ankle. He was out for two weeks then and has played nearly 300 matches since then without a serious injury.
David Beckham was a surprise starter. The yellow cards added up resulting in Blaise Matuidi and David Beckham both being ruled out of the second leg.
