PSG thrashed Barcelona 4-0 at Champions League round-of-16
Not since 2007 has Barcelona failed to reach the quarterfinal of the Champions League, but it is in serious danger of missing out this season after being comprehensively beaten 4-0 by Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their round-of-16 showdown on Tuesday.
The French champions appointed Unai Emery as coach for his European record, and, after a season that began awkwardly defensively, he responded by delivering probably the most eye-catching result the club has achieved in the Champions League.
Angel Di Maria scored twice and Julian Draxler and Edinson Cavani got the others as Barcelona matched its worst-ever European result.
