Result: Barcelona edge past Paris Saint-Germain

Barcelona squeeze past Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League quarter-finals on away goals following a 1-1 draw at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona have edged past Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League quarter-finals on away goals following a 1-1 draw at the Camp Nou.

Despite the teams ending the tie 3-3 on aggregate, the Spaniards have progressed thanks to last week's 2-2 draw in France.

The visitors dominated the first half and they could have been ahead at the break but for Barca goalkeeper Victor Valdes.

The Brazilian pushed away Ezequiel Lavezzi's effort on 30 minutes before he kept out Lucas Moura's header moments later.

However, PSG took the lead five minutes after the restart when Javier Pastore clipped the ball over the onrushing Valdes following a run into the penalty area.

Pastore had a glorious chance to double their advantage on the night with an hour played, but he sliced wide from 10 yards having been picked out by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Lionel Messi was brought off the bench with 25 minutes left on the clock and the Barca talisman made an impact soon after when he was involved in Pedro's equaliser as the forward smashed the ball home from inside the box.

PSG toiled in the final stages as they looked to score what would have been a winning goal, but Barca held on to book their place in the last four of the competition.
