PARIS (AP) David Luiz and midfielder Marco Verratti scored their first goals for Paris Saint-Germain in a 3-2 win over Barcelona in a Champions League Group F encounter on Tuesday.
Luiz put PSG ahead in the 10th minute, with Lionel Messi equalizing two minutes later. Poor Barcelona defending allowed Verratti - one of the smallest players on the pitch - to drift in unmarked to head PSG ahead again in the 26th.
Midfielder Blaise Matuidi finished off a fine move to give PSG a 3-1 lead in the 54th but Barcelona's Brazilian star Neymar replied in the 56th, again exposing PSG's defensive vulnerability after the euphoria of scoring.
