[ad#m1] Blaise Matuidi turned out to be the hero of the night for the Paris side as they came back twice in the match to make it 2-2. Everyone thought it was a Valdes howler but the shot took a wicked deflection. Okay, maybe a bit of howler from Valdes. Nicely assisted by Zlatan Ibrahimovic though, who scored the first goal.
Lionel Messi, who could not complete the game, scored the first through an incredible assist from Alves. Xavi then converted from the spot after Ibra had equalised for Paris Saint-Germain.
Thiago Silva had a wonderful game as he tackled throughout the game with perfection. Certainly the best business from PSG’s Qatari owners.
