FC Barcelona won their fourth Cup Winners Cup in Holland with a 1-0 win against PSG, the goal scored by Ronaldo
Barça sweetest memory of games against Paris Saint-Germain was on May 14, 1997, in the Cup Winners Cup Final, when they beat the side from the French capital 1-0 thanks to a goal from Brazilian striker Ronaldo, scored from the penalty spot in the 37th minute. The game was played at the De Kuip in Rotterdam. That was the fourth time FC Barcelona, managed that season by Bobby Robson, won the now defunct trophy, and the two sides have never met since.
Shortly before, in the 1994/95 Champions league, Johan Cruyff’s Barça side met PSG, managed at the time by Luis Fernández, in the quarter finals. The first leg at the Camp Nou ended 1-1 and in the return leg, PSG put the Catalans out of the competition with a 2-1 win at the Parc des Princes.
