Paris Saint-Germain is swarming Barcelona at the Parc des Princes, and even Lionel Messi is getting stung.

Julian Draxler scored his fifth goal in eight competitive outings since his January switch from VfL Wolfsburg in Tuesday’s Champions League Round of 16 tie, exchanging passes with Marco Verratti before smacking the ball home. Adrien Rabiot robbing possession off Messi epitomised the host’s superb pressing game in the opening stanza.

Julian Draxler has now scored for PSG on his:

Ligue 1 debut ⚽
Coupe de France debut ⚽
Champions League debut ⚽

Thriving at the club.

The 23-year-old doubled Les Parisiens’ advantage after Angel Di Maria‘s lush free-kick on 18 minutes. Barcelona has never won any of the 20 Champions League fixtures in which it has fallen 2-0 behind.
