Watch it again: the incredible moment Barcelona sealed comeback


It’s been dubbed greater than Istanbul.

4-0 down from the first leg, Barcelona were all but out of the Champions League.

When Paris Saint-Germain nicked an away goal in the Nou Camp, they were definitely out.

That was before quite possibly the greatest comeback in the history of football.

Unbelievable. Ridiculous. Beautiful.

Goals from Luis Suarez, a Layvin Kurzawa own goal, a Leo Messi penalty, and a brace from Neymar had put Barcelona 5-1 up with just a kick of the game left.

Then this happened:

Sergio Roberto was the man who got the history-making goal, having only come on as a sub in the second half.

No team had ever come back from four goals down after the first leg, but Barca continue to defy logic.

This was a Blaugrana team that were said to be past it, no longer mystifying the continent with the kind of footballing majesty that they used to.

There were a few contentious decisions, but PSG can’t blame them for their undoing. Luis Enrique must be thinking hard about that decision to quit.
