In an exciting encounter for the Parisians, they managed a convincing victory against the Catalans, winning with an aggregate score of 6-4 against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

A 30-year trajectory for PSG's young age

Paris Saint-Germain enters among the top 4 teams in Europe for the fourth time in its history, where it asserts itself in a great moment for the club in the top European competition. The first time it reached this position was in 1994/95, when it fell in the semifinals against AC Milan, with an aggregate score of 0-3.

Until the 2020/21 season, PSG would again reach these positions in the Champions League, even reaching the runner-up of the competition, losing 0-1 to Bayern Munich. The following year, it would once again reach the semifinals. However, it would be eliminated at the hands of Manchester City, with an aggregate score of 1-4.

Luis Enrique's reconstruction for the current season

For Parisian fans, obtaining such a position in this 2023/24 season is a very important feat, after two consecutive years of falling in the Champions League Round of 16, and also after the departure of 3 of its most important figures in the history of the club, such as Neymar Jr, Marco Verratti, and Lionel Messi, the latter with a fleeting stint at the club, leaving a bitter taste in Paris.

Their opponent for the semifinal will be Borussia Dortmund, who managed to prevail greatly against Atletico Madrid with an aggregate score of 5-4. This club already has a long history with PSG in recent years and is even a well-known opponent in this same edition, having both qualified in the "Group of Death" (Group F) and will meet again in the semifinals to determine who will be the finalist of this tie in the 2023/24 season.
