Barcelona Complete The Biggest Comeback In Champions League History
UN-BLOODY-BELIEVABLE!! Barcelona have completed the greatest comeback in Champions League history.
Barcelona beat Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 on the night after trailing by four goals from the first leg!
The French champions battered Barca in Paris but Luis Enrique charges have done the impossible by knocking PSG out.
Luis Suarez gave his side a glimmer of hope by opening the scoring in the third minute before Kurzawa scored a bizarre own goal giving them a 2-nil lead at half-time.
Lionel Messi then made it three by converting a spot-kick. Though it appeared a comeback was off following Edison Cavani's brilliantly taken goal.
Until Neymar popped up with an incredible free-kick, then a penalty inside three minutes, before Roberto scored a last gasp winner to send Barca through.
HISTORY! @FCBarcelona complete one of the greatest comebacks ever! :raised_hands::raised_hands::raised_hands: #UCL https://t.co/09FxtkHpvy
