Mbappe’s PSG Defeat 10-Man Barca to Advance to Champions League Semifinals

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) secured a spot in the Champions League semi-finals with a 6-4 aggregate win over Barcelona. Despite Barcelona taking an early lead with Raphinha’s goal, PSG turned the tide in their favor after Ronald Araujo’s red card in the 29th minute. Ousmane Dembele and Vitinha leveled the tie for PSG, and Kylian Mbappe’s brace ultimately sealed their victory.

The French champions, despite never having won the trophy, demonstrated their attacking prowess and secured a place in the semi-finals for the first time since 2021. The game saw Barcelona struggle to maintain possession, leading to PSG gaining control. With Barcelona’s coach Xavi being sent off and multiple dismissals from their backroom staff, the hosts had no comeback, and Mbappe’s 89th-minute goal sealed their fate.

PSG’s coach Luis Enrique, who previously led Barcelona to Champions League victory in 2015, expressed his belief in his team’s ability to turn things around, and they did just that. The match showcased PSG’s resilience and Barcelona’s disappointment in Europe once again.
