Uruguay international Ronald Araujo received a straight red card in the 29th minute of the match, after referee Istvan Kovacs judged him to have committed a last-man foul on the edge of his own box. At the time of his dismissal, Barcelona were leading 1-0. Following Araujo’s sending off, PSG equalised and went on to score three more goals through Vitinha and a brace from France captain Kylian Mbappe, ultimately securing a convincing victory over the former Spanish champions.

Post-match, Barcelona midfielder Ilkay Gundogan expressed his thoughts on the disappointing outcome, attributing Araujo’s decision as pivotal in the team’s defeat. Gundogan remarked, “It’s hard to say whether Araujo was the last man… But in these crucial moments, you have to be sure if you go for the ball,” he said, as per the *Metro*.

He further added, “I don’t know if he touches the ball or not. I prefer to concede a goal or even allow a one-on-one. I don’t know if he got to the ball or not, but give the goalkeeper the opportunity to stop it, or even give them the goal.”
