“It’s an intimidating stadium,” Sagna was quoted by Goal.
“It is a small pitch and the fans are very close to the pitch.
“There is a lot of intimidation and agitation. You really hear the chants and whistles. There are not many people, but they sound like they were doubled.”

An opener in Paris for Ezequiel Lavezzi was cancelled out by an Eden Hazard penalty, before a David Luiz own goal and a late strike from Javier Pastore put the hoists firmly in control.
