While PSG director Leonardo was at the Champions League draw contemplating the best way to embarrass his girlfriend with a marriage proposal on live TV, the rest of the team watched from the club's training facility back in Paris. And when they were paired with a resurgent Barcelona, the reaction was rather lively.
Though most of the team openly celebrated the fact that they get to play such a legendary opponent, Christophe Jallet put his hands on his head and immediately walked out of the room (full video this clip is taken from can be seen here).
PSG will be without former Barca man Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the first leg of the tie as he finishes out his two-match ban from UEFA, so it will be up to David Beckham and his new friends to keep things locked down until Zlatan can be unleashed in the second leg at the Camp Nou. Zlatan failed to get his revenge against Pep Guardiola and Barcelona in the quarterfinals of the Champions League last season as a member of Milan, but he didn't have the luck of the Beckham on his side then.
