Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona 2019 v 2016-17 last 16: Barcelona defy belief to shatter PSG

The only time any side has overturned a four-goal aggregate lead.

Strikes from Angel di Maria (two), Julian Draxler and Edinson Cavani left Barcelona needing a miracle against Paris St-Germain to reach the quarter-finals.

What followed was nothing short of extraordinary.

Barcelona knew they had to go for it in the return leg and gave themselves a chance with three goals in the first 50 minutes at the Nou Camp. Cavani then struck for PSG to seemingly end the tie and leave their opponents needing three more goals to advance.

In the most incredible finale, Neymar scored in the 88th and 91st minute against his future employers before Sergi Roberto’s 95th-minute winner completed a turnaround that had to be seen to be believed.

“Utter mayhem” and “deep, instinctive passion at its most authentic and unrefined” were seen by BBC Sport’s Spanish football writer Andy West after the full-time whistle.
