Uefa Champions League: Barcelona Defies Odd To Knock-Out Paris Saint Germain


Barcelona pulled off the Champions League’s most incredible comeback as they beat Paris Saint Germain to go through 6-5 on aggregate.

Barcelona claimed a scarcely believable Champions League victory against Paris Saint-Germain that will go down in history as one of the all-time great comebacks, Sergi Roberto netting in the fifth minute of stoppage time to seal a sensational 6-5 aggregate triumph after they had trailed 4-0.

Suarez put Barcelona ahead in the third minutes when he flicked a header over PSG keeper Kevin Trapp.

The Spanish added their second of the night with poor defending from Marquinhos allowing Andres Iniesta to chase down Suarez’s flick-on in the area and send a clever back-heel across goal which was sliced into his own net by Kurzawa.

Lionel Messi added Barcelona’s third from the sport after Thomas Meunier brought down Neymar in the box.

PSG got their precious away goal when a deep free-kick from Verratti led to Kurzawa getting above Ivan Rakitic to head back into path of Cavani and he dispatched a magnificent dipping finish into the roof of the net, sparking ecstatic scenes from Emery and the away supporters.

Angel Di Maria came on for PSG and could have made it 3-2 on the night when he raced clear only to shoot wide.

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 to send Barcelona to the next round.
