Barcelona produced one of the greatest come-backs in football as they overturned a 4-0 first leg defeat to reach the last eight of the Champions League beating PSG 6-1 in the second leg at the Nou Camp.

Paris St Germain looked  home and dry with a four goal lead from the French capital but at the Nou Camp got their tactics completely wrong as Barcelona produced the kind of football only they can.

They pulled two back in the first half through Suarez and Kurzuwa, added a third just after the restart with a Messi penalty and when Cavani gave PSG a precious away goal on the hour mark, it looked all over for Barca.

Somebody forgot to tell the players and supporters as the Spanish giants dug deep to find three goals with only three minutes remaining. They got them, one in normal time from the gifted Neymar, who then grabbed the second from the penalty spot in the first minute of extra time and the Roberto winner that set the Nou Camp rocking with virtually the last kick of the match.

Sheer joy for Barcelona, utter dispair for PSG but on the night football was the big winner.

In the night’s othe tie, Dortmund beat Benfica 4-0 to overturn a 1-0 loss in the first leg in Portugal.
