    • Paris Saint-Germain
    • 90+4' It is all over! A 1-1 draw sees Barcelona into the last four 3-3 on away goals. Brilliant stuff from Messi to rescue the dream. Thanks for joining us.
    • 89' We into four minutes of time added on here.
    • 88' David Beckham has been booked for what appears to have been a spot of dissent after some fouling.
    • 87' Lucas Moura has not been quite so evident in this second half, but he had a sniff there only to be squeezed out by some eager Barca defending.
    • 86' Van der Wiel replaces Jallet for PSG. The home fans still looking concerned as PSG attempt to find the goal they need to alter mater.
    • 85' Some wonderful skill by Iniesta in the PSG box, but he smacks the finish into the side netting from an acute angle.
    • 84' Barca trying to snuff out the threat of PSG. Iniesta and Xavi keeping the ball with their usual relish.
    • 83' Messi on the move for Barca, but he is chopped to the deck by Thiago Silva. And finds himself booked for that one.
    • 82' A standing ovation for David Villa with Alex Song given the nod to try to add some protection to that Barca rearguard.
    • 81' Beckham on, Verratti off. Not exactly the warmest reception for him. Nine minutes plus injury time for Beckham to work his magic.
    • 80' Meanwhile, Beckham is going to see these final 10 minutes. Can the former Real Madrid man rescue this tie for PSG? We'll soon find out.
    • 79' Gameiro arrives for PSG as Lavezzi departs the scene.
    • 78' Alba is far from happy with Lavezzi's conduct. Barca on the ball again. PSG going to make a change here.
    • 77' Lavezzi is late on the back of Alba. And that brings about a yellow card for the former Napoli man.
    • 76' Alex with a high ball towards Ibrahimovic. The Swedish striker with a little flick into the path of Lavezzi, who is deemed to be offside.
    • 75' Barca trying to keep the ball in their usual style. Trying to run down the clock in possession, but one goal could yet deliver riches for PSG.
    • 74' Zlatan Ibrahimovic has delivered his seventh assist in the Champions League this season, more than any other player. But at the moment, he is heading out.
    • 73' Pastore just overhits the pass looking for Lavezzi. Poor final ball by Pastore into space. Barca will take those all night long.
    • 72' Alex rises to head clear a cross. Barca continue searching for this second goal, but Pastore on the move for PSG.
    • 71' Xavi with a corner that flies over the head of the Barca players. PSG suddenly having to change this game then.
    • 70' Daniel Alves concedes a free-kick for a foul on Ibrahimović. Still not sure if Messi is fit, but he is telling his team-mates to calm down. Wise advice.
    • 69' Suddenly, the mood of this match has changed. Barca heading through on away goals as we stand. The home fans loving it.
    • 68' GOAL! Pedro thumps the ball into the corner of the net. Brilliant goal from Barca. They are level at 1-1. Messi to Villa and he pops the ball back to Pedro to finish. 1-1.
    • 67' As soon as Barca lose possession, PSG look to break. And they are causing the home side no end of problems with the pace of their attacking movements.
    • 66' Alex and Ibrahimovic causing so much danger in that Barca box, but Valdes is off his goal to pluck the loose ball out of the air.
    • 65' Pastore with an effort on goal at the other end, but this time his shot eludes the target. We remain at 1-0 in favour of the visiting side.
    • 64' Iniesta slams a shot at goal. Sirigu dives to make a strong block, but Messi can't finish up to score and PSG survive that moment.
    • 63' Xavi with a potent corner. Met by Pique, but his shot on the turn is blocked by the traffic. Barca going for this here with Messi on.
    • 62' Alex comes across to make a fine block on Iniesta as Barca earn their latest corner.
    • 61' Changes coming for Barca with Messi replacing Fabregas and Bartra on for Adriano. Is Messi fit? We will soon find out.
    • 60' Chance for Alves inside the PSG area, but he lifts the shot miles over the bar from around 15 yards out.
    • 59' Ibrahimovic seemed to be fouled as he raced into the box. Pique struggling to cope with the pace, but nothing doing from the referee.
    • 58' Ibrahimovic slides a free-kick from distance over the wall. Straight into the arms of Valdes.
    • 57' Busquets concedes a free-kick for a foul on Verratti. I'm not sure Messi is fit enough to play tonight. Has this been a tactical ploy to boost the home side?
    • 56' Another glorious chance for Pastore, but he mishits the shot after being played in by Ibrahimovic. More superb play by PSG.
    • 55' Villa drills the ball across goal. Not sure if that was a shot or cross. Came off Alex's knee, but the referee votes for a goalkick.
    • 54' Jallet doing well to earn his side a goalkick after blocking the cross of Alba. Meanwhile, David Beckham is doing a spot of warming up.
    • 53' PSG just cutting Barca apart on the counter attack. Pace, power and focus in the movements of PSG. Barca stunned at the moment.
    • 52' All 20 of PSG’s goals in the Champions League this season have been scored from inside the box, more than any other side.
    • 51' What a chance now for PSG. The Nou Camp stunned by that. But can't say the goal wasn't coming. Wonder what the next move is for Barca. Will Messi be risked?
    • 50' GOAL! Pastore dinks the ball into the net. Valdes goes to ground as the ball flies over him. A 1-0 lead for PSG. Can't say they didn't deserve that. Lovely ball by Ibrahimovic into his path.
    • 49' Fabregas earns another piece of space from around 20 yards out. Cracks the ball at goal, but the shot is again over the bar. Disappointing end to another promising moment.
    • 48' Barcelona are unbeaten in their last 20 Champions League games at Camp Nou - 16 wins, 4 draws - their last defeat dating back to October '09.
    • 47' Jallet forced to make a decent block on the run of Alba before PSG deal well with the corner-kick.
    • 46' We are off and running then in the second half of this evenly poised contest.
    • 45+1' There goes the whistle for the break! PSG will be happy with their first-half effort, but they need a goal to progress. 0-0.
    • 44' We are into one minute of time added on in this half. Looks like 0-0 at the break.
    • 43' Maxwell doing well to knock the ball away from Fabregas after Iniesta had tried to open up the door.
    • 42' PSG seeing just under 40 percent of the ball. Which is a veritable feast of possession at the Camp Nou.
    • 41' Ibrahimovic smashes a free-kick straight into the wall. Plenty of power. But not too much thought. And on we go.
    • 40' Adriano is the first man into the book for a late challenge on Moura. And suddenly there is a free-kick chance on the horizon for the white shirts.
    • 39' Fabregas drills one from 25-yard range. Ball flies over the bar. We remain delicately poised at 0-0 in this match.
    • 38' Barcelona have never lost in the Champions League when Lionel Messi has come on as a substitute - three wins, five draws.
    • 37' Villa spins well a couple of yards inside the PSG area. Cracks the ball at goal. But in keeping with the general theme, the shot is high and not so mighty.
    • 36' Messi looking a bit restless on the bench. Not his natural habitat. He is the go to guy for Barca. But when they go to him is a moot point.
    • 35' Pedro scurries into the box at some pace. Goes beyond Jallet, but can only crack the loose ball across the face of goal. And on we go at 0-0.
    • 34' Alex comes steaming in to meet another Lucas corner. Spins off his head and falls out of play. Worrying moments for the home team.
    • 33' Pique tracks the run of Lucas Moura. Makes the block, but Barca will have to defend a corner here. Which they just manage to do as Ibrahimovic rose.
    • 32' Some more poor play by Barca brings some more noise from the home fans. The absence of Messi from this team is all too obvious.
    • 31' This is some nice stuff by PSG. Moving forward as a unit before defending in numbers. Ancelotti knows what he is about from his days running Milan.
    • 30' Lavezzu is offside this time after Valdes nudges away an Alex header. PSG coming more and more into this game.
    • 29' Ibrahimovic sends the ball across the face of goal. Lucas Moura heads at goal, but Valdes is well positioned to tip over the bar.
    • 28' Jallet just offside after setting off too soon. Fine powerful run by him.
    • 27' The natives are getting somewhat restless. PSG playing a cute game. And it must said, giving as good as they are getting.
    • 26' Lavezzi taken out of the action late by Pedro and that will take the heat off the visiting side.
    • 25' Thiago Silva and Alex win a couple of headers in the Barca box before Xavi play the ball out from the back.
    • 24' Daniel Alves concedes a free-kick for a foul on Verratti. PSG have a free-kick just inside the home half.
    • 23' Superb stop by Valdes to block the shot from Lavezzi with Barca cut open at the back. PSG continue to enjoy some bright moments on the move.
    • 22' Alba forced to do some covering work to race back and nod the ball back to Valdes. Good awareness to spot the danger posed by Ibrahimovic.
    • 21' PSG are working so, so hard to confine Barca to certain areas of the park. The home side not getting an easy night so far.
    • 20' Pedro slips a shot into the side netting after Salvatore Sirigu had blocked the cutback across goal by Pedro. Bright play by Barca.
    • 19' Moura dashing through the middle. Tries to play the one-two, but the move breaks down at the key moment. More inventive movement from PSG.
    • 18' Thiago Silva concedes a free-kick for a foul on Fàbregas. Barca keep the ball at the halfway line.
    • 17' Moura drags a shot at goal, but this time the ball swerves a few yards over the bar. All very promising this for the visiting side though.
    • 16' Ancelotti cutting an antimated figure around the PSG technical area. Must be quietly content with how his evening has started. Or his side's evening.
    • 15' Lionel Messi looking on from the Barca bench. Wonder when or if we will see him this evening. Or how fit he is for action.
    • 14' Another decent run and shot by Lavezzi, but he is never over the ball as he leans back and lifts the effort over the bar.
    • 13' Sergio Busquets trying to get his act together after that slip almost presented Lavezzi with the chance to strike. Lucas Moura wallops a shot at goal from distance, but Valdes dives to make the stop.
    • 12' Iniesta goes for goal some 40 yards or so out, but is just off target. Audacious attempt, but a couple of yards too high.
    • 11' Fabregas picks out Pedro with a lovely ball across goal, but his shot is blocked by a white shirt. PSG holding firm so far.
    • 10' Pique attempted a backheel in the middle from the corner, but nobody reading his intentions. The home fans encouraging their side to get on the ball as much as possible.
    • 9' Since 2007/08, Barcelona have only played six of their Champions League without Lionel Messi (8%). Only goalkeeper Victor Valdès has played as many Champions League games as the Argentinian (65) in this period.
    • 8' Iniesta thumps the ball at goal. Powerful shot, but Jallet gets himself between ball and goal. Corner comes to nothing for Barca. And on we go.
    • 7' Xavi again lines up the shot, but this time rattles his effort straight into the wall. Then Fabregas slips seconds later after pulling the trigger. Neither side truly settled.
    • 6' Thiago Silva slips after trying to knock a free-kick long. Forced to kick the ball for a second time. That is a foul. And Barca have another chance from the same free-kick range.
    • 5' Lavezzi lost his footing as he dashed through the middle. Strong surging run. And Pique does just enough to get back to make the interception before Valdes clears.
    • 4' Some neat play moving forward by PSG on the counter attack ends with Lavezzi warming the paws of Valdes. Decent effort, and early encouragement for the French team.
    • 3' Xavi inches away from netting from the free-kick. Just wide of the post. Not sure Salvatore Sirigu would have got across to save that.
    • 2' Verratti concedes a free-kick for a foul on Fàbregas. Free-kick chance for the home side from 25 yards out.
    • 1' We are off and running then in Barcelona. You can almost smell the excitement in the air of this home crowd.
    • 19:40 Teams on their way out for this one. That old Champions League tune given an airing here. As you would expect. A full house inside the Camp Nou for this one. Almost ready to go. Barca in traditional home strip. PSG in white shirts.

    • 19:25 Here is a report of how the first leg unfolded last week at the Parc des Princes.... Paris Saint-Germain v FC Barcelona | Result | Champions League 2012-2013 - Yahoo Eurosport UK
    • 19:20 The only French club to beat Barcelona at Camp Nou is Metz, back in October 1984 (Cup Winners Cup). PSG’s only previous trip to Camp Nou in the Champions League was back in March 1995. They drew 1-1 with Barcelona. Barcelona are unbeaten in their last 20 Champions League games at Camp Nou (16 wins, 4 draws), their last defeat dating back to October 2009 against Rubin Kazan (1-2).
    • 19:15 No French club has won at the Camp Nou in the Champions League one draw, four defeats). PSG are the only team not to have lost in Barcelona in this competition.
    • 19:10 Barcelona assistant coach Jordi Roura: "Obviously if the best player in the world is not available then it's a handicap for us.

    • 19:05 PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti is calling on his side to be brave away from home. "We have to defend, but our goal is not only to defend, we must also show courage. With or without Messi, it is the same for us. To reach the semi-finals, we still have to win."
    • 19:00 PSG were sweating over their captain as Brazilian defender Thiago Silva missed the weekend's game against Rennes due to a knee problem. But he starts as do compatriots Alex and Thiago Motta. Midfielder Matuidi will be sorely missed after a yellow card in the first leg ruled him out of the return.
    • 18:55 Lionel Messi is fit enough to reclaim his spot on the bench with Barcelona opting to go for Pedro Rodriguez up front after he was suspended with Cesc Fabregas and David Villa joining him for the home team.
    • 18:50 The visiting side have opted to leave Beckham on the bench, but are also minus midfielder Blaise Matuidi. Barcelona must try to join Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid in the last four without Carles Puyol and Javier Mascherano, who are both missing for the home side.
