Barcelona FC struck an awe-inspiring comeback against Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) with a sensational 6-1 win after going down 4-0 against its opponent in the first leg.
Before the match, Luis Enrique, coach and manager of Barcelona, believed that if they could stand their ground after a much disappointing 4-0 defeat to PSG then they could march outside and play their best game and score 6 goals to reach the quarterfinals. Neymar claimed that he would score twice in the bout. Both men lived up to their dreams and Barcelona achieved a historic triumph.
The attack initiated in the very beginning of the match. Luis Suarez opened 3′ into the game. This early goal became the sharp edge required by Barcelona to carve out a winning piece. Layvin Kurzawa became victim to the continuously stacking pressure created by Barcelona and ended up scoring an own goal.
In the latter half, Lionel Messi did the courtesy of netting a penalty with a well placed ground shot. After struggling almost the entire time, PSG managed to grab one goal. Not long after Neymar was presented a free kick which he converted in Messi style.
PSG offered Barcelona another penalty, this time Neymar claimed it. In the dying seconds of the game, Barcelonian substitute, Sergi Roberto, scored; making it the record sixth goal.
Even the coldest heart would have empathized with PSG after the game. PSG was served fried to Barcelona on a silver platter. Apart from that, it was remarkable to see both the clubs fight and play skilfully.
Such a game can be dreamed from Barcelona as they are capable of putting opponents to shame even in the dying minutes. They also managed to step into the last 8 -tie. The celebration of victory is still ongoing and they are making it loud enough to be heard globally.
