UCL: Barcelona Pulls Off Epic Comeback Advancing To The Quarterfinals


We all got to witness one of the most dramatic Champions League matches ever last night as La Liga giants, Barcelona that everyone had written off after losing in the first leg 4-0 to French side Paris SaintGermain on Feb.14 pulled off an historic win for the books.
The 0-4 defeat in

the first leg of the Round of 16 meant that Barcelona needed to score at least 5 goals in the second leg on March 8, all while keeping PSG – one of the best squads in the world – scoreless. It seemed ‘mission impossible’, 


No team has ever come back from a four-goal deficit to advance to the next round but five time european champions were up for the task. 

Luis Suarez kicked off this history-making comeback two minutes into the game, securing the first goal.Followed up by Andres Iniesta, putting Barca up 2-0 at minute 42, though he had help from PSG’s Layvin Kurzawa,
Lionel Messi converted a penalty in the 50th minutes to make it 3-0 for the home team. Edinson Cavani finally pulled one back for PSG in the 62nd minute to put the score at 3-1 in the game and give PSG a 5-3 edge on aggregate.
Two goals by Barcelona’s Neymar Jr. gave each team five goals on aggregate. With the aggregate score even, PSG would have won the match on away goals, But Sergi Roberto scored the winning goal in stoppage time to complete Barcelona epic win.
