PSG eye CL quarters after battering Barcelona

The sweet smell of success will be wafting over the French capital after Paris St Germain comprehensively outclassed Barcelona in the first leg of the Champions League knockout phase at the Parc des Princes.

Angel Di Maria netted twice, while Julian Draxler and Edison Cavani also scored, as the match finished 4-0 to leave the Spanish side with an enormous mountain to climb at the Nou Camp next week.

Elsewhere, a second-half strike by Kostantinos Mitroglou gave Benfica victory over Borussia Dortmund and a slender lead to take-away to Germany for their return match.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a chance to equalise but failed to convert a penalty for that valuable away goal.
