Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hailed his side's "character" in their 2-2 draw with Barcelona at Parc des Princes on Tuesday.

PSG twice came from behind to hold the Blaugrana to a draw in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

"It was a good game," he told UEFA.com. "We demonstrated we could play and I think 2-2 is a fair result if you look at the game. We played against a fantastic team. We were 1-0 down and 2-1 down, so it is good for us.

"We showed character and this gives us more confidence. We are only here to learn. This is the first year for the club, everything is new and we have a lot of new players. It is not easy to play against Barcelona. The game went well for me.

"We have to play like a team and when the team plays well it is easier for me. I am very confident [of progressing]. We have a great opportunity. It will not be easy but we will go there and play the game and we will see."

The second leg of the tie will be played at Camp Nou in Barcelona next week.
