Blaise Matuidi's last-gasp equaliser clinched a draw for Paris Saint-Germain FC at the end of a pulsating UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg against FC Barcelona.
Tito Vilanova's team thought they had won the game when Xavi Hernández restored their lead with an ice-cool 89th-minute penalty, but the French outfit kept on battling and drew level again in added time as Matuidi latched onto Zlatan Ibrahimović's lay-off to score left-footed. Lionel Messi had opened the scoring on 38 minutes before departing injured, only for Ibrahimović to equalise 11 minutes from time and set up a grandstand finish.
We missed a few good chances but we're in a better position than we were at 2-1 and there is no reason why we can't go there and get a result.
David Beckham, PSG midfielder
It's a pity we finished like that, conceding at the death. It leaves a bitter taste, but this is a knockout tie and it’s not a bad result away from home.
Andrés Iniesta, Barcelona midfielder
