Neymar was the scourge of Paris Saint-Germain once again as Barcelona confirmed their place in the last four of the Champions League with a 2-0 victory over the French champions at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona 2-0 PSG - REPORT

The Catalans came into the contest boasting a commanding 3-1 advantage from the first leg and their progress was never in doubt as they eased to a 5-1 triumph on aggregate thanks to some clinical finishing from the Brazilian forward.

The former Santos hot-shot got the hosts up and running on 14 minutes when he showed neat control to round Salvatore Sirigu and tuck home after Andres Iniesta had brought the crowd to its feet with an assist that saw him leave four defenders in his wake.

PSG had hoped the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marco Verratti from suspension would give them an outside chance, but they rarely threatened as the hosts controlled the proceedings without ever nearing top gear.

A second goal was inevitable and it duly arrived from Neymar once more as he took his tally to five in four matches against the French side this season with a well-placed header from Dani Alves’ cross.

Barcelona continued to dictate the play in the second period but couldn’t add to their margin of victory. Paris Saint-Germain barely threatened with Verratti flashing their best effort wide from 20 yards as they bowed out with whimper.
