Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to haunt former side Barcelona as he scored one and set up the other for Paris St-Germain in their Champions League quarter-final first leg.

The Swede stabbed home from an apparently offside position to cancel out Lionel Messi's well-made opener.

Xavi's 89th penalty after Salavatore Sirigu fouled Alexis Sanchez seemed to have secured the win for the Catalans.

But Ibrahimovic's 94th-minute knock-down was swept home by Blaise Matuidi.

Meanwhile, in Germany, Bayern Munich produced an authoritative home performance to leave Juventus facing an uphill task to reach the Champions League semi-finals.

The German league leaders made the perfect start when David Alaba's deflected 35-yard shot spun past Gianluigi Buffon after 25 seconds.

Bayern totally dominated the Italian champions and created several superb chances in the quarter-final first-leg.

But they could not make their dominance count until Thomas Mueller's tap-in.
