Barcelona pull off record-breaking Champions League comeback against PSG

Mar 09, 2017, 00:35

But Luis Enrique was in a fighting mood in his pre-match press conference, refusing to accept that the tie and a place in the last eight is out of reach.

"I don't think we have any pressure", midfielder Marco Verratti said.

"If we score two then they can begin to get nervous that we can pull it off because we know we are capable of it".

"Despite the fact that the result from the first leg is very one-sided, we are only halfway through the tie", added an uncharacteristically buoyant Enrique. Over 95 minutes, an infinite number of things can happen.

"Barcelona would have to have an exceptional game and at the same time Paris Saint-Germain a awful one, so I think it is very hard".

"That's behind us now and we have to focus on the return match".

"I don't have the feeling that we need the best game since I got here".

PSG midfielders Adrien Rabiot, Angel Di Maria and Thiago Motta are in the squad having recovered from their respective injuries. Just two weeks ago in the first leg of their Round of 16 match-up against PSG, they lost 4-0.

The only time PSG knocked Barcelona out in the Champions League was in 1994/95 quarter-finals (3-2 on aggregate).

The PSG also had their four wins with one draw on their last five in the French Ligue 1 (3), French Coupe de France (1), and UEFA Champions League (1). Only Bayern Munich are on a longer winning run at home in the history of the competition (16, current streak).

Barcelona will need one of the biggest comebacks in Champions League history to advance to the next round, as PSG visit the iconic Camp Nou with a four-goal lead.

It was both humbling and humiliating, but if there is a team that can score four goals against anyone - it is this Barcelona that boasts the striking power of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar as their front three.

The Catalan giants then secured the all important sixth goal on the night, as Sergi Roberto poked home from close range to seal their spot in the quarterfinals.

The former Atletico Madrid man has seven assists and 13 goals in 27 apperances for Barca this season.
