Barca 6-1 PSG, the Greatest Comeback in European Competitions History

Barca 6-1 PSG, the Greatest Comeback in European Competitions History

Barcelona created history to beat Paris Saint-Germain 6-5 on aggregate and reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Trailing 4-0 from the first leg, Barca had halved the deficit at half-time at the Nou Camp after Luis Suarez’s third-minute header and an own goal from Layvin Kurzawa.

Lionel Messi made it 4-3 on aggregate with a penalty shortly after the break, only for Edinson Cavani to seemingly secure PSG’s progress with a vital away goal on the hour mark.

That left Barca needing to score three more, which looked unlikely until an incredible climax.

Neymar fired in a brilliant free-kick in the 88th minute and then scored a penalty shortly afterwards, before substitute Sergi Roberto grabbed a dramatic winner with almost the last kick of the match.
