Barcelona is through to a sixth Champions League football semi final in a row, following the Spanish giants' second leg 1-1 draw with Paris Saint Germain at Camp Nou.

Javier Pastore opened the scoring for PSG early in the second half prompting the insertion of Lionel Messi into the match, who started the game on the bench nursing a thigh strain.

Pedro Rodríguez slotted the equaliser in the 71st minute taking the score to 3-3 over both legs on aggregate.

Barcelona go through to the final four on the away goals rule after the first leg in Paris was drawn 2-2.

Elsewhere, Bayern Munich defeated Juventus 2-0 in their second leg at Turin to send the German Champions through to the semi finals.

Mario Mandžukić scored in the 64th minute before Claudio Pizarro struck in stoppage time.

Bayern also won the first leg 2-0.
