PSG Complain To UEFA Over Refereeing In Barcelona Defeat

Paris Saint-Germain have complained to UEFA about the refereeing of their 6-1 Champions League defeat at Barcelona last Wednesday.

The French club are unhappy with the performance of German referee Deniz Aytekin and, in particular, his decision to award Barcelona a controversial late penalty.

Aytekin pointed to the spot in the 91st minute when Luis Suarez went down after what appeared to be minimal contact from PSG defender Marquinhos.

Barcelona scored three goals in the final seven minutes to come back from 4-0 down in the first leg to win 6-5 on aggregate.

The PSG players and their families were confronted on their return to the French capital by a mob of angry fans, with the club strongly condemning the behaviour of the supporters involved.

The club said players were insulted and had their cars vandalised as supporters waiting to confront the team at Bourget Airport created an "extremely hostile and aggressive climate".

PSG said one person was struck by a car during the incident, which is now the subject of a police investigation.
