"PSG did what we expected them to do and produced their best version and we were at our poorest", the Barcelona coach added.

The players that played for Barcelona would be those of the few who say that they had a Valentine's night to forget at Paris. Jordan Henderson was among those to defend the team at the time as he insisted that they were thanking the supporters rather than celebrating the result.

Prior to this confrontation, Luis Enrique admitted his side now needed a "heroic performance" to stand any chance of overturning the four-goal deficit.

It was one of the worst Barcelona performances in recent memory but PSG were also at their absolute best and, in truth, could have won by an even bigger margin.

Zubizarreta did warn PSG, though, that if any side can recover from such a thrashing, it is Barcelona with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar in attack.

With this emphatic win, PSG have put themselves in an outstanding position to knock Barcelona out of the Champions League.

PSG's victory in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League last 16 was fueled by Di Maria, Julian Draxler and Cavani.

It should be a cracking game this as PSG will be aware that they need to go for it being at home. "It was a wonderful display and fully deserved", he said on BeIn TV after the match. "It is an important moment in the season because it is the Champions League which is a very clear objective for the club and it is against Barcelona".

Di Maria's fellow birthday boy, Cavani, then made it a rout with this 72nd-minute goal.

Knowing a big first leg lead would be needed to quell the impending Barca Camp Nou storm, PSG turned on the style in their own backyard, giving everything their fans would have dreamed of and more.

Greece global Mitroglou flicked the ball into the net to open the scoring in the 48th minute as Benfica, who have now not conceded a goal at home for 383 minutes, prevented the competition's best attack from scoring.
