Paris Saint-Germain managed to embarrass Barcelona with a 4-1 victory in the duel at the Camp Nou. Although the victory seemed extraordinary, captain Marquinhos asked his colleagues to remain calm.
The Super Big Match, titled the first leg of the last 16 of the European Champions League, took place at dawn WIB (17/02) at Estadio Camp Nou, Barcelona.
As the host, of course Barcelona is more favored to win at first, moreover, coach Ronald Koeman also fielded his best squad in the party.
Sure enough, Barca also looked convincing by scoring the goal first through Lionel Messi’s penalty in the middle of the first half.
However, after that the game turned into a nightmare for Messi et al. How come? The visitors immediately found Ter Stegen’s goal four times in the remainder of the match, with Mbappe scoring a hat trick, while Moise Kean scored another goal.

After the match, captain Marquinhos then spoke about the victory, according to which PSG had learned from past mistakes.
“It’s a big [result]. We came home winning. We know the benefits of this result. We have learned from our mistakes,” Marquinhos told UEFA’s official website.
Even so, the Brazilian national team defender asked his colleagues to remain calm and humble, because after all there is still a second leg party in Paris.
“We will remain humble. There are still 90 minutes left to play. We still have goals to achieve in Ligue 1. We have to keep working. If we can continue with this passion and attitude, we can do great things.” He said.
What Marquinhos said was true, considering that PSG had suffered from being made Barcelona at the same event. At that time, they won 4-0 at Camp Nou but lost 1-6 in a duel in Paris.
