Barcelona have qualified for the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League, staging a stunning comeback from 0-4 deficit in the first leg, to edge out Paris Saint Germain 6-5.

Thanks to a late brace by Neymar in the 88th and 90th minute and a Sergi Roberto overtime goal, a feat that had looked daunting after Edinson Cavani slotted in a goal for PSG in the 62nd minute, became achievable. The feat in front of 96,200 spectators at Camp Nou was an unprecedented comeback in UEFA history.

After Cavani’s goal, and the scoreline was 3-5, Barcelona needed to score three goals to qualify. Neymar and Roberto provided them. And Neymar was surely the hero.

The Brazil forward brought his team back from the dead with a wonderful free-kick and set Paris nerves jangling again from the penalty spot.

It was also Neymar who then set up Sergi Roberto for an unbelievable finish.

Luis Suarez had opened scoring just after three minutes, before PSG’s Layvin Kurzawa doubled Barcelona’s goal in the 40th minute with an own goal.

Five minutes after resumption for the second half, talisman, Lionel Messi made it 3-0 from the penalty spot, before Cavani replied with a goal for hapless Parisians. (NAN)
