It was a thrilling encounter at the Parc des Princes, as Barcelona defeated PSG 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Raphinha was the star of the show, as he scored a brace to help Barca to the victory.

Xavi was full of praise for Raphinha, following his performance against the French champions.

“For me, Raphinha is a differential player in his potential,” Xavi said after Barca beat PSG 3-2 away.

The Barca boss continued: “[He’s] one of the best in the world in space, he has goals, finishes plays, presses high, is the first, and always works for the team.

“He is always looking to improve. Very happy for Raphinha, he deserves it.”

Raphinha was always a danger on the ball all game long, until he was eventually subbed off in the 75th minute for Ferran Torres, as he looked to have gotten tired at that point.

Raphinha’s brace took his goal tally for the season to eight, with 10 assists as well.
