#UCL: Suarez Silence PSG In France…Porto Stun Bayern Munich

Luis Suarez scored a brilliant brace as Barcelona dominated PSG in France with a 1-3 victory, stamping a strong foot in the quarter final stage of the UEFA Champions League.

Two stunning individual goals from Suarez, after Neymar had given the visitors a first-half lead, but while Gregory van der Wiel grabbed a late consolation for the French champions.

Lionel Messi found Neymar in space down the PSG right and the Brazilian forward finished with a low side-foot shot after just 18 minutes.

The hosts lost captain Thiago Silva to injury soon after with David Luiz replacing him, and squandered a great chance to level when Edinson Cavani attempted to find Javier Pastore instead of going alone.

Suarez silenced the home crowd 20 minutes into the second half, nutmegging Luiz and holding off Marquinhos before squeezing past Sirigu in a goal that was all his own work.

The Uruguayan then embarrassed Luiz again, repeating the nutmeg in a more central area before emphatically firing in his 11th strike in as many games to put the visitors out of sight.

PSG were offered a slim lifeline when van der Wiel’s shot was inexplicably diverted into his own net by substitute Jeremy Mathieu but the Catalans will be firm favourites when they meet again next week at the Camp Nou.

Elsewhere, Porto combined tireless pressing and clinical finishing to stun Bayern Munich 3-1 at the Stadio do Dragao after a dreadful defensive display from the Germans.

Two goals from Richardo Quaresma and another from Jackson Martinez propelled the Portuguese side to victory but Thiago Alcantara’s first Champions League goal may give the German champions hope for the second leg.
