Brilliant Neymar inspires Barcelona to brush aside PSG and reach Champions League semi-final

By Staff Reporter

Barcelona reached the Champions League semi-finals for the seventh time in eight years after comfortably brushing aside the challenge of Paris St Germain.

Barca did most of the damage in the first leg with a 3-1 win in Paris and they finished the job off with relative ease at the Nou Camp, with two first-half Neymar goals earning a 2-0 win.

The Brazilian superstar was on target on 14 and 34 minutes.

Luis Enrique's in-form side will now go into Friday's mouthwatering draw for the last four along with Bayern Munich, with one of last season's two finalists - Atletico and Real Madrid - joining them, as well as either Juventus or Monaco.

The 5-1 aggregate victory also keeps Barca firmly on course for the treble, having already reached the final of the Copa del Rey - they face Athletic Bilbao on May 30 - and boasting a two-point lead over Real Madrid in La Liga with six games to go.
