Angel Di Maria’s 29th birthday is going pretty well.

The Paris Saint-Germain attacker put a left-footed free kick between the heads of Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez in the Barcelona wall, giving the French side a 1-0 lead on Tuesday.

Suarez’s jumped forward to help open the gap, but it’s still a fine strike by the former Real Madrid and Manchester United man.

Barcelona was down to 10 men at the time thanks to an injury to Neymar, and PSG pounced to take a first leg lead in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.

Andre Gomes found Barcelona’s first chance in the 27th minute, as Neymar played Andre Gomes through on Kevin Trapp. Gomes tried to meg the keeper, but Trapp got a piece of it.
