Christensen’s late winner sinks PSG in Champions League thriller

Barcelona’s thrilling 3-2 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League quarter-final first-leg tie was a spectacle filled with twists and turns.

Andreas Christensen emerged as the hero for Barcelona, scoring the winner with his first touch of the match just moments after coming off the bench on his birthday.

His header from Ilkay Gundogan’s corner sealed the crucial win for the visitors.

Ousmane Dembele, facing his former club for the first time since his departure, made a significant impact by equalizing for PSG with a powerful drive into the roof of the net.

The 26-year-old’s celebration, running away to celebrate with his teammates instead of showing restraint, added to the drama of the match.

Raphinha was another standout performer for Barcelona, scoring both the opening goal and the equalizer.

His first goal in the competition came from pouncing on an error by Gianluigi Donnarumma, while his second was a skillful volley after receiving a lofted pass from Pedri.
