- +

Barcelona needed a 71st-minute Pedro Rodriguez strike to qualify for the Champions League semi-finals at the expense of Paris Saint-Germain, while Bayern Munich also progressed after proving too strong for Juventus. 

Barcelona's Pedro Rodriguez (L) celebrates with Jordi Alba after scoring during their Champions League match against PSG on April 10, 2013. The 71st-minute strike by Pedro allowed Barcelona to qualify for the semi-finals at the expense of PSG.

After drawing 2-2 in last week's quarter-final first leg in Paris, Barcelona went behind for the first time in the tie when Javier Pastore struck shortly after half-time, but the introduction from the bench of Lionel Messi lifted the Catalans, and Pedro struck to level the scores on the night and make the final aggregate score 3-3.
