Angel Di Maria soaked up the love and adoration of the Paris Saint-Germain faithful as his brilliant brace inspired a rampant 4-0 Champions League triumph over Barcelona.

PSG were knocked out of the competition by Barcelona in 2013 and 2015 but Luis Enrique’s side now require a comeback unprecedented in Champions League history having been put to the sword in the French capital.

Di Maria, celebrating his 29th birthday, dispatched a free-kick that rewarded PSG’s dominant start and Unai Emery’s men never relinquished their grip on the first leg of the last-16 tie.

Former Sevilla boss Emery had only beaten Barcelona once in 23 previous attempts but he was well on his way to number two when Julian Draxler scored on his Champions League debut for PSG, as he did in Ligue 1 and the Coupe de France last month
