    Barcelona Victorious In Greatest Comeback In Football History (Barcelona vs Paris Saint Germain Match Report)


    FC Barcelona have just made absolute footballing history in their UEFA Champions League knockout round second leg match versus Paris Saint Germain. 

    The Catalan side were faced with one of the toughest mountains to climb so far this season in their second leg match at the Nou Camp. This was after losing by four goals to nil in Paris three weeks previous.

    This meant that the Spanish club would have to keep a clean sheet and score four to win the tie in the second leg; and if they failed to do so, they would be faced with an even tougher task of having to score at least six in a dramatic fashion to succeed against the French champions.

    Barça started the match well with an extremely early goal as Uruguayan attacker Luis Suarez beat Kevin Trapp in the air and nodded in for the Spanish giants on three minutes. Their momentum then gained strength as the determined side battered the opposition defence and eventually broke through with a second goal as attacking midfielder Andrés Iniesta saw a clever back heal turned into the net by Layvin Kurzawa on forty minutes. This saw Barcelona go into half time positively with a 2-0 lead. 


    Luis Suarez wheels away in jubilation after putting Barça in front early on.
    Despite Barça being two goals to the good, the knowledge that they must score at least two more goals to even have a sniff at going through was still heavily in the minds of both sets of players. Paris Saint Germain seemed to be more confident in the opening moments of the first half, but on the counter attack, Suarez was brought down and a penalty was given after debate between the referee and his assistant. Lionel Messi stepped up and the nerves didn't faze the Argentinian, as he confidently fired his penalty into the bottom left corner on fifty minutes. 

    Belief was sparked into the Barcelona players and fans as the almost impossible was beginning to become a reality. - "That was until Paris fired a free kick into the penalty area and Cavani was first to react as he smashed the ball into the roof of Ter Stegen's net". - The looks of hope quick turned to despair for the Barcelona faithful, and all thought the game was well and truly over for good.

    Paris Saint Germain brought on Angel Di Maria, and his threat was felt almost immediately by the Spanish defence, as the PSG winger dribbled past three and drilled a fantastic ball into the penalty area. Unfortunately for the French side there was no one on the end of the cross, and the score remained 3-1 to Barça...

    This was until Messi broke through into the away side's half with a skilful run which won  a free kick on the edge of the area. Neymar stepped up and fired it in at pace terrifically into the top right hand corner with two minutes of regular time left to play. A spot of belief filled the stadium once more and the tension rose significantly for both sets of players and fans. Two more goals would see the Spanish side turn the game around in spectacular fashion, and this was become a reality once more as Suarez dramatically won a penalty after being pulled down in the penalty area by Brazilian wonder-kid Marquinhos with three minutes of stoppage time left to play. Neymar stepped up and finished calmly into the bottom right to give Barcelona fans even more of a glimmering hope.

    Barcelona a glimmer of hope in the dying moments.
    Pressure from the Catalans destroyed the opposition's confidence, as goalkeeper Ter Stegen rushed up for the home side in desperation looking for that winning goal. 
    A free kick was won in the defensive half, and it was floated into the penalty area by Messi, but as a relief for Paris fans, this was seen clear by star defender Thiago Silva. However, this was only as far as Neymar who was waiting approximately ten yards outside of the penalty area. Thirty seconds of stoppage time remained.

    With fantastic trickery, Neymar slid past one and dinked the ball with perfection towards the penalty spot, and young defender Sergi Roberto was given the chance of a lifetime. 
    He had only been on the pitch for about fifteen minutes after Luis Enrique had brought him on late in the second half. The ball fell to him, and first time he smashed it into the top corner of the net and sent the Barcelona fans roaring into pandemonium. 


    Barça players celebrate enfatically after Roberto fires home
    to win the match with the last kick of the game.

    The face of Unai Emery said it all. 

    Sergi Roberto had just scored the winning goal in arguably the most dramatic fashion in footballing history. - That goal saw the home side complete the greatest comeback in Champions League history, and against all odds that goal sends Barcelona into the quarter finals.

    Paris Saint Germain players, and fans alike, stared in disbelief. Pure anguish ran through their faces.

    The home side on the other hand had some who were jumping for joy and some who could barely speak a word. - This was an incredible match for all footballing fans. 

    Will we ever see anything like this again? Was this even more dramatic than Manchester City's late winner which sealed them the Premier League title all those years ago?
