A few weeks ago, Paris Saint-Germain absolutely dismantled the greatest club in the world during their first leg Champion’s League match. Barcelona was faced with heading home for the second leg down 0-4 with no away goals and their tail between their legs.
But then today happened. The single greatest comeback in the history of the UEFA Champion’s League where Barcelona stormed back to score two first half goals (Luis Suárez 3′, Layvin Kurzawa 40′ Own Goal) with a Messi penalty tacked on in the 50th minute just after the second half began. With PSG scoring the all-important away goal, Barcelona was faced with having to score three goals in the final 30 minutes to move on.
Beginning with Neymar’s 88th-minute free-kick, they did just that. They turned the final five minutes of the game into absolute mayhem by scoring three goals to win 6-1, thus moving on 6-5 on aggregate.
You can watch all the full highlights here, but this was the goal that sealed it.
Hate on soccer all you want, but while you were sitting at your desk today, you missed quite possibly the greatest comeback in the history of soccer, if not sports. .
