Neymar nets 2 as Barca beats PSG 2-0 to reach CL semifinals

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -- Neymar scored two goals as Barcelona beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 on Tuesday to seal its return to the Champions League semifinals, joining Europe's elite four teams for the seventh time in eight seasons.

Neymar had already netted Barcelona's first goal in its 3-1 first-leg win, and the Brazil striker struck in the 14th and 34th minutes to crush PSG's already slim hopes of a quarterfinal comeback.

Barcelona's dominance of was so complete that despite Neymar's brace Andres Iniesta was arguably the best player on the Camp Nou pitch. The veteran midfielder used a breathtaking solo run through the heart of the visitors' defense to set up Neymar for the opener.

Neymar then took advantage of PSG's lax marking to head home his second goal from Dani Alves' cross.
