Barca clearly thought they could just turn up and win on star power alone. Messi never does much defending, but he was an absolute passenger yesterday. At least jog around a little bit when the other team has 4 players bearing down on you. Iniesta was absolutely atrocious too. His injury must have been worse than we thought, or he’s aging in dog years.
PSG should get more credit though. Rabiot was incredible, he was all over the pitch. Matuidi might have completed 95% of his passes. And Di Maria showed what he can do when he can be bothered to engage.
I will predict Barca wins 3–1 in the return leg. PSG goes through.
