PSG survived a first-half onslaught from Barcelona to advance to the next round of the Champions League courtesy of a 1-1 draw in Paris.

The Catalan club needed to score four goals for the tie to swing in their favour in Paris and started like a team capable of producing them with Ousmane Dembele wasting some glorious early chances.

However, against the run of play, PSG opened the scoring when Kylian Mbappe dispatched a penalty after Mauro Icardi had been fouled off the ball by Clement Lenglet.
