Barcelona completed one of the most sensational comebacks in the history of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday at the Camp Nou, overturning a four-goal deficit – and knocked out Paris St-Germain – to advance to the quarter-finals.

Luis Enrique’s men began in a dominant fashion with Luis Suarez scoring the opener in the third minute before an own goal from Layvin Kurzawa helped the home team walk into the break with a two-goal lead. Barcelona’s hopes of creating history received further boost when Lionel Messi converted from the spot five-minutes after the restart. However, the tie looked beyond Barca’s reach when Edinson Cavani scored for the visitors just after the hour mark. But there was still a lot of drama left in the match as Neymar scored a stunning free-kick in the 88th minute to set up a nervy finish. The Brazil international then scored the fifth goal for his team from the spot after Suarez went down under a challenge from Marquinhos. Sergi Roberto then completed a remarkable comeback by poking home a Neymar cross to make it 6-5 (on aggregate).

Here is how Twitter reacted to the incredible tie at Camp Nou:

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
