Saved expertly from both Lucas Moura and Ezequiel Lavezzi in the first half as PSG ran rings around his back four.
Caught out of position for PSG’s first, which left him scrambling in vain to catch up with Javier Pastore. His forays forward sometimes left gaping holes down the right channel, which PSG were able to exploit regularly.
Successfully harried Ezequiel Lavezzi off the ball during a dangerous run through on goal by the forward early on. Though there were one or two nervy moments, he generally stood his ground at the back.
Not quite as negligible about his positioning as Dani Alves on the opposite flank, but the direct running of Lucas Moura down the right still gave him an almighty headache to deal with. His offensive contributions improved as the game went on.
Drafted into a central defensive role alongside Gerard Pique, but perhaps inevitably, he looked far less assured than the Spaniard. His lack of height cost him a few aerial duels, and his positioning was suspect as well.
Though the options in front of him may have been blunted when faced with shooting opportunities, the veteran midfielder was his usual consistent self, controlling the game from deep whenever Barca were on the ball.
Once again, the former Arsenal captain did not look entirely comfortable with being shoe-horned into a false-nine role in the absence of Lionel Messi. He simply was not able to provide a penalty-box threat, and did not possess Messi’s ability to drive forward into such a position.
Really came alive in the second half, as he found more opportunities to wriggle in and out of traffic in the attacking third, causing havoc in the PSG defensive ranks.
Really struggled with the pace and synergy among PSG’s front four whenever they attacked, and could not offer his defence any meaningful protection. The French side found countless space in his zone of the pitch.
Hard working off the ball as always, but sometimes, there was little spark to match his industry. However that all changed with 19 minutes remaining, as he arrowed a superb low shot home from the edge of the box to drag his side into the last four.
Spain’s all-time top scorer looked decidedly off the pace for the second European game running. He spooned his best opening well over the bar, but kept his cool for one crucial second-half moment to lay off to Pedro for the equaliser.
Can take no accountability for Pedro's equaliser, but in truth, the Catalans did not manage to threaten him much otherwise.
An authoritative showing from the Brazilian in the centre of defence, as he was first to virtually every ball, and refused to be fooled by the movement and deception on display from the likes of Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas.
He was beaten to the byline once by Villa in the first half, and after performing dependably for the best part of an hour, started to wobble once Lionel Messi stepped onto the pitch to lift Barca.
In certain instances, he was able to overlap on the flanks and put significant pressure on the Barca defence with his deliveries into the area. When the opportunity presented itself, he offered his side a real outlet down the left.
The former Chelsea man was not as reliable as compatriot Thiago Silva at the back, failing to get a tackle in on David Villa in the build-up to Barca's goal. But as usual, he offered a good target in the opposition area on set pieces.
His pace and athleticism was outstanding on the night, proving a real handful for the Barca defence time and again. His set pieces were also purposeful, and he could have gotten his name on the score-sheet with a far-post header that was saved.
With Marco Verratti occupying a more static role alongside him in midfield, the Brazilian was tasked with the brunt of the leg-work. Though he was not faulted for effort, sometimes, his tendency to race out of position left space in behind.
Functioned with complete ease at the base of the French outfit’s midfield, dictating the tempo of their counter-attacking approach, and positioning himself well to defend when his side lost the ball.
Very composed on the ball, and linked the midfield and attack splendidly. His orchestration was particularly evident when PSG were in full flow on the counter, as he combined with the front three on multiple occasions. And on one particularly sublime break, he latched onto a Zlatan Ibrahimovic feed to clip his side into the lead.
Drove forward on and off the ball with plenty of conviction, but his finishing did not match the enterprise of his build-up. He fired over the bar from a great position at the top of the box, before poking right at Victor Valdes from point blank range.
The big Swede played the role of facilitator tonight, setting up Lucas Moura and Ezequiel Lavezzi for excellent chances, before seeing his generosity rewarded by Javier Pastore, who scored from his feed.
Solid at the back after coming on for the latter stages of the game.
He may not be at 100 per cent fitness, but the Argentine still stands head and shoulders above Barca's other attacking options. A storming run right through the spine of PSG helped to create Pedro's equaliser.
