PSG deny stars partied before Barca choke

Mar 10, 2017 - 6:29 PM Paris St Germain have denied that two of their players were in a nightclub a couple of days before the Ligue 1 club were thrashed 6-1 by Barcelona in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

Sports daily L'Equipe reported on Friday that midfielders Marco Verratti and Blaise Matuidi had been spotted in a Paris nightclub on Monday, one day before travelling to Barcelona for Wednesday's game. The Catalans, who lost 4-0 in the first leg, reached the quarter-finals with a 6-5 aggregate win.

The report said that the two players had left the nightclub "after midnight".

"It's insulting to their professionalism and to the club," PSG wrote in a statement on Twitter.

"Shame on those - often L'Equipe - who publish unconfirmed information."

PSG, who resume their domestic duties at Lorient on Sunday, are second in Ligue 1, three points behind Monaco.
