March 10, 2021

PSG fans got their own back on Barcelona after setting off fireworks outside their hotel at 4am.

The French champions in February were given a rude awakening as Barca supporters tried to stop of Ligue 1 champions from sleeping.



It clearly didn't work, as PSG left Spain with a 4-1 advantage, with superstar Kylian Mbappe scoring three of those vital away goals.

Barca have it all to do and matters may be worse now after PSG fans returned the favour with a fireworks display in the earlier hours of the morning.

It was the latest in attempts from supporters to put off the LaLiga giants, as a section of sick fans held up a Shakira ‘prostitute’ banner.

The ultras were slammed as misogynistic following the jibe at Barca defender Gerard Pique's wife.

Suffering from a knee injury, the centre-back is ruled out of the Champions League last-16 second leg.

Last Sunday night, a parade of ultras lit flares and held up a number of banners in the French capital.

One read 'Shakira a La Jonquera' in reference to a town on the French-Spanish border that is notorious for prostitution.

Many viewing the images found them sexist and unnecessarily insulting of the 'Beautiful Liar' singer.

PSG ultras also paraded banners that read 'Barcelona are not welcome' and 'Europe on its knees, all of Paris standing'.
