Paris Saint-German manager, Laurent Blanc, has revealed that his side capitalised on Barcelona's defence to beat the Spanish side in their Champions League game on Tuesday.

The French team defeated Barcelona 3-2 despite having some of their key players,Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva missing the game.

And Blanc revealed that they had to capitalize on Barca's weakness in defence to end their unbeaten run so far in the season.

"We watched their games on the video with the staff and we agreed that even though they did not concede, they allowed clear chances to their opponents," he told a news conference.

"They take a lot of risks, it's not easy to defend at Barca, I know it I played there," added the former centre back, who played for the Catalan side in the 1996/97 season.

"They take risks, especially the full backs who attack a lot."

"We did not dominate possession, which is a rare thing for us," he said. "But we hit them when we had the ball and it was important that we'd be clinical."
