Barcelona 6:1 PSG: The Greatest Champions League Comeback

Barcelona made Champions League history by becoming the first team to overturn a first-leg 4-0 deficit as they knocked out Paris St-Germain to reach the quarter-finals for the 10th successive season yesterday. The Spanish champions were 5-3 down on aggregate in the 88th minute, but scored three goals in the final seven minutes in one of the greatest European ties of all time.

According to BBC Sport report, Neymar’s free-kick and penalty followed by Sergi Roberto’s 95th-minute winner sealed victory on an incredible night at the Nou Camp. Barcelona had led 2-0 at the break courtesy of Luis Suarez’s header after just three minutes and Layvin Kurzawa’s own goal. They added another shortly after half-time when Neymar fell over Thomas Meunier in the box and Lionel Messi converted the penalty.

Sergi Roberto scored deep into stoppage time to help Barcelona beat the French champions 6-1 at the Nou Camp.

Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and two from Neymar lead Luis Enrique’s side to one of the most dramatic wins in European football history.
