FC Barcelona have now reached the semi-finals with nine wins in ten UEFA Champions League games, something that no other European club has done since the 2011/12 tournament.


Of the nine wins, eight were consecutive. That's FC Barcelona's best Champions League winning streak since they won 11 straight in 2002/03, under a different format.


Barça's 2-0 victory over Paris Saint Germain was their 50th game played this season. The Catalans' record thus far is jaw-dropping — 42 wins, 5 losses, and 3 draws.


It is the seventh time in the last eight seasons that the Club has reached the Champions League semi-finals. It's also the eighth time in the last ten years.


Neymar has 30 goals this season in all competitions, double his scoring output for all of last season when he netted 15 goals in 41 games.


Neymar has also scored in every match Barça have played against Paris Saint-Germain this season, totalling 5 goals in four clashes between the two teams.


Andrés Iniesta and Dani Alves assisted Neymar's first and second goals, respectively. It was the third assist for both players in this year's Champions League.


Neymar's brace only further increases the scorching output from Barça's big three strikers. All together, Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Luis Suárez have scored 95 goals this season.

The Barça defense was a brick wall once again and the team recorded their 28th shutout this season. Claudio Bravo has 18 shutouts in 32 games and Marc-André ter Stegen has 10 in 17 games.


Blaugrana wing-backs Dani Alves and Jordi Alba recovered the most balls with 11 and 10, respectively.


Alba and Alves were also one-two in completed passes. Alba completed 94 passes, while Alves had 80. The illustration below shows both defenders' completed passes in the match against Paris Saint-Germain — Jordi Alba is number 18 and Dani Alves is 22:
