Goal line technology has shown that Luis Suarez' early headed goal for Barcelona comfortably crossed the line. Trapp's indecision in goal for PSG presented Suarez' with an opportunity in the six yard box. The Uruguayan needed no second invitation in the third minute, and nodded the ball beyond the desperate 'keeper. Munier scooped the ball out with an outstretched leg, but it was not enough. The referee pointed to the centre circle, and Barça had their dream start.

However Cavani pulled one back for PSG after 62', leaving Barcelona needing three.
