Raphinha was a terror against PSG at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night.

Aside scoring a brace for the Blaugrana, Raphinha was so full of energy, his pressing and direct play made the PSG backline.

Raphinha always seemed to cause problems whenever he had possession of the ball.

Injuries and a lack of form at times, had made many question Raphinha’s ability, with rumours claiming that he could be sold this summer.

After a five-star performance against PSG, Raphinha insisted he’d stay at Barcelona, while also claiming that the PSG performance wasn’t his best yet.

“Red card, two injuries… it’s been a difficult season for me,” Raphinha has said after scoring twice against the Parisians.

“It’s a special night for me. [Is it the best game of my career?] No, it’s yet to come. I still have many years left on my Barca contract and I plan to fulfill them.”

The 27-year-old Brazilian now has eight goals and 10 assists in 30 appearances for the Blaugrana this season.
