Paris: Paris Saint-Germain were hailed in the French press on Thursday for their valiant effort against Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-final.

After last week's first leg ended 2-2, PSG travelled to the Catalan giant's Camp Nou on Wednesday night with a semi-final berth there for the taking.

When Javier Pastore gave the French outsiders the lead after half time, an upset was on the cards, until Barca summoned Lionel Messi from the bench and Pedro fired home 19 minutes from time to level the tie 3-3 and put the Spaniards through on away goals.
