The French side scored a 4-0 win in the Champions League meeting tonight
PSG have just recorded one of the most famous results in the club's history, following a 4-0 drubbing against football giants Barcelona.
From the outset, Paris Saint-Germain dictated the pace of this game and their attacking approach was rewarded inside the opening 20 minutes, when Angel Di Maria curled a free-kick into the roof of the Barcelona net.
It was 2-0 before the intermission after Julian Draxler crashed a low shot into the net and by that stage, Barcelona were visibly shaken with no love coming their way on Valentine's Day.
PSG continued the assault after the restart, with a second goal from Di Maria and a powerful strike from Edinson Cavani completing a famous performance for the French side.
Salvaging a result in the second leg of this last-16 fixture looks to be an insurmountable task for Barcelona and here is how Twitter assessed the astonishing result.
