What A Result For Barcelona! Where Will They End Up In The UCL This Season?

Thu Mar 09, 2017 8:20 am

Spanish giants produced arguably the best performance in the history of the club and one of the greatest comebacks in the history of football to secure a spot in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) following the 6-1 demolition of French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) at home in what was the 2nd leg of their last 16 tie.

The Blaugrana as they are popularly referred to were aided by an unbelievable three goals in the last five minutes with scores at 3-1 on the night and 3-5 on aggregate as at the 85th minute before Brazilian star Neymar orchestrated the fightback for his team.

Barcelona came into the game having lost the first leg 4-0 away from home at Parc Des Princes in France and needing five unreplied goals to make it into the last eight. Uruguay striker Luis Suarez quickly gave the home fans some hope in the 3rd minute when he headed in from close range before PSG left-back Laryvin Kurzawa put through his own net just before the interval to double Barcelona's lead thus making it 2-4 on aggregate to the French side.

The Spanish champions continued from where they left off when star man Lionel Messi scored a third goal from the spot with five minutes of the second half gone after Neymar was adjudged to have been brought down by right-back Anthony Meunier however striker Edinson Cavani produced a superb finish twelve minutes later to give his PSG side the all-important away goal meaning the home side had to score three more goals.

They huffed and puffed for over twenty minutes before Neymar started the comeback with a good free-kick five minutes from time. He added another goal from the spot to make it 5-1 on the night and 5-5 on aggregate after Suarez was brought down by Brazilian defender Marquinhos with just a minute left on the clock paving the way for Sergi Roberto's tie winner in added time. How far do you think Barcelona can go after this greatest comeback of all comebacks?
