Barca comeback will never be forgotten - Luis Enrique

Boss Enrique was close to tears after the remarkable recovery propelled Barca into the last eight.

While PSG's calamitous collapse certainly played a part in Barca's 6-1 victory, Luis Enrique's men produced some sublime football - led by Neymar - to score three goals in the final seven minutes and complete the the nearly impossible comeback. However, Neymar restored Barca's belief as he firstly fired home a sensational free-kick two minutes from time and then converted from the penalty spot. They are the first team since 2010 to score three goals in the 80th minute or later in regulation of a Champions League match. A feat like this does everyone good and I'm delighted to enjoy a moment like this.

"I know that we have made history". A team like this can do anything. "The first week after Paris was tough but we rediscovered our football and since the second week we couldn't wait for this game to come around".

Neymar earned a penalty early in the second half which Messi dispatched to make it 3-0 on the night and then gave Barca renewed belief with a curled free-kick after Edinson Cavani's volley looked to have wrecked the chances of a comeback. Barca completed this memorable comeback with the fans over the moon over what they just witnessed.

"Suddenly there were people running across the pitch, bodies cascading down the stands, a collective hysteria taking hold of the Camp Nou, and the kind of noise that even this famous arena, the biggest football stadium in Europe, had never heard before".

Initial reports by some Egyptian media outlets had suggested that the winch had damaged the statue, or had broken it into pieces. He is famed for having led several military expeditions and for expanding his empire to stretch from modern day Syria to Nubia.

Verratti continued: "The qualification of Barca is deserved".

Also based in Barcelona, Sport simply told the players: "YOU ARE LEGENDS". "After winning 4-0 in the first leg this is very hard to accept".

"It's not an excuse, but there was no foul on Suarez for the penalty, and we could have had a penalty of our own. Having said that, we mustn't blame the referee, because we weren't able to play our game".

The reaction from angry PSG fans was swift and violent. Barcelona played like a team on a mission and it was their persistence and eagerness to win that got them through despite the odds being heavily stacked against them.

Mauricio Pochettino is on a list of managers interesting Paris Saint-Germain if they decide to replace Unai Emery at the end of the season.
