Champions League Highlights: Barca sneak through as Bayern see off Juve
Last night’s Champions League Action saw tournament favourites Barca edge through to the competition’s semi-final stage after a 1-1 draw versus PSG at the Nou Camp.
Lionel Messi came off the bench to kick-start a Barcelona fightback as the four-time winners reached the Champions League semi-finals on away goals.
Javier Pastore’s clipped finish put Paris St-Germain ahead for the first time in the tie, 3-2 on aggregate.
But Messi, who suffered a hamstring strain in the first leg, inspired Barca and was involved as Pedro hammered home from 15 yards.
Meanwhile, in Italy,
Bayern Munich reached their third Champions League semi-final in four years after knocking out Juventus.
Leading 2-0 from the first leg, the Germans were again comfortable as Mario Mandzukic headed in Bastian Schweinsteiger’s free-kick before Claudio Pizarro slotted in late on.
Arjen Robben also hit the post as Bayern created the best chances.
Juve were restricted to Andrea Pirlo’s saved free-kick and Fabio Quagliarella’s shot which hit the post.
The scoreline mirrored the first leg in Munich, and there was again a gulf in class between the two teams who are top of their respective domestic leagues.
