Barcelona stun the world; makes Champions League history

Barcelona defied the odds to pull off the greatest escape in Champions League history as they beat Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 at Camp Nou to become the first side to overturn a 4-0 first-leg deficit in Europe's top-tier competition.

Barcelona stun the world; makes Champions League history

Barcelona are the first side in Champions League and European Cup history to overturn a four-goal first-leg deficit

Three goals in the last seven minutes for the Catalan giants ensured Luis Enrique’s side became the first side in the competition’s history to overturn a first-leg 4-0 away defeat.

Edinson Cavani’s strike just past the hour mark looked to have sealed the Parisians’ route to the last eight before two goals from Neymar and a late strike from Sergi Roberto handed the hosts a sensational victory.

The hosts went three goals ahead thanks to Luis Suarez, an own goal from Layvin Kurzawa and a Lionel Messi penalty before Cavani looked to have curtailed the building momentum.

But, as Luis Enrique suggested was possible on Tuesday, Barca incredibly hit that target and they did so in the most dramatic of circumstances, scoring three times after the 88th minute – Neymar getting two before Sergi Roberto sealed progression five minutes into stoppage time.
