Bayer Leverkusen 0 Paris Saint-Germain 4

As statements go, this was pretty assertive.

While the eyes of the football world were trained on the more glamorous occasion in Manchester, PSG delivered a performance which all but ensures a comfortable passage into the last eight. The rest, too, will have noted this result and the ease at which the away side dispatched their opponents.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, of course, was the driving force, with two goals: a penalty and a brutish shot into the top corner, both in the space of three first-half minutes. Blaise Matuidi had earlier opened the scoring and, in the dying minutes, Yohan Cabaye, the former Newcastle midfielder, also struck after Emir Spahic had received a second yellow card.
