Barcelona cruised into the Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday night thanks to an early double from Neymar.

The Catalans already had one foot firmly in the last four after their 3-1 victory in Paris and the result was ensured beyond any reasonable doubt before half-time in the Nou Camp.

PSG, Chelsea's conquerors, had no answer to Neymar's brilliance as their captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic endured a miserable return to his old stomping ground.
