On the field, Xavi Hernandez’s team sometimes led with a total score of 4-2, but the turning point of the match came in the 29th minute, when 22-year-old striker Bradley Barcola escaped to the edge of the penalty area, facing the goalkeeper.

Araujo’s push showed no signs that he wanted to take the ball legally, so the referee could also both draw a red card and blow a penalty if the foul was in the penalty area.

But they fell.

A superb long-range shot helped Vitinha equalize the score 4-4 for PSG.

Barcola was brought by PSG from Lyon last summer for a transfer fee of 48 million USD, and he was able to play in the main attack with Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele, instead of more expensive rookies like Goncalo Ramos or Randal Kolo Muani.

Barca collapsed in just seven minutes in the first half of the second half, with two more goals conceded.
