The away Champions League leg to Paris St-Germain was like the baseball pitcher who has a perfect game going. Then he walks a guy. Next guy gets a hit. Next guy hits a home run and suddenly, it’s all gone.
Barça rolled into Paris on the heels of a single draw as the “negative” result, and no goals conceded. This was to be the match, the team’s first match against a grownup, where we would see what this group was really capable of, and a number of things happened.
— Barça conceded
— Barça lost
— Barça was easily controlled at times

— PSG played its collective tails off in an excellent display.
— Barça didn’t
Seems simple, right?
