Barcelona suffer worst Champions League knockout half in nearly a decade

It was not a half to remember for Luis Enrique's men at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday as goals from Di Maria and Draxler left them reeling

Barcelona haven't had a half of Champions League knockout football like the one they had on Tuesday in a long time.

Luis Enrique's side were torn apart in the first half of their round-of-16 first leg, as goals from Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler gave Paris Saint-Germain a 2-0 lead at half-time.

It was the first time Barcelona have conceded more than once in a half of Champions League knockout football in nearly 10 years. 

And the prospects of a second-half comeback looked pretty bleak as well, at least judging from history.
