Champions League: Dortmund lose to Benfica, PSG hammer Barcelona 4-0

Barcelona may exit Champions League this season after they were humiliated 4-0 by Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.

The hosts tore into the La Liga champions from the blast of the referee’s whistle and missed some early chances to take the lead.

However, Angel Di Maria lifted an excellent free-kick over the wall and past a stranded Marc Ter Stegen to give PSG the lead. Julian Draxler marked his debut in the competition for his new club with the second before half time.

After the break, Unai Emery’s men extended their lead, thanks to another exquisite finish from Di Maria. There was enough time for Edinson Cavani to grab his seventh goal in the Champions League this season.

The stunning results leave Barcelona needing to score at least four goals in the return leg at the Camp Nou or be eliminated.

In the other game of the night, Kostas Mitroglou scored the only goal as Benfica beat Borussia Dortmund 1-0 in Portugal.
