PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti admits Lionel Messi was the difference as they were eliminated from the Champions League by Barcelona last night.

Messi came off the bench to create Pedro's equaliser and send Barca into the semis on the away goals rule.

Ancelotti said: "Even if he is not 100 percent fit, he is always a fantastic player.

"We were good in possession and played quickly up the field.

"We didn't just defend like a lot of teams who come here, we caused them problems. But Messi gave his team confidence."
