After a 1-1 draw against PSG in the UCL pre-quarterfinal, Spanish club Barcelona has been knocked out from the UEFA Champions League.

PSG took the lead in the 30th minute of the game when Dembele converted a Penalty opportunity. Barca quickly leveled the lead with Leo Messi's goal in the 37th minute but couldn't score afterward.

Despite the domination of Barcelona on the pitch with more than 70% of the ball possession and almost thrice accurate passes, the Spanish football giants were unable to get the performance they wanted.

Barcelona needed at least a 4-nil win to qualify for the quarter-finals.

In the first leg, Barca had lost the game 4-1 at home. Barca were looking to repeat the 2017 miracle when they thrashed PSG 6-1 on the second leg after being 4-nil behind in the first.
