Barça's new signing got his first minutes since arriving; go with us behind the scenes and see how the special day went for him
Philippe Coutinho's first touches as a Barça player drew a quick succession of oohs and ahhhs from the Camp Nou faithful.
A tsunami of applause had just roared through the Stadium as Andrés Iniesta trotted off the field. Then, a crescendo, as his replacement, the 25-year-old Brazilian boy-wonder entered the field of play.
Barça was already up, 2–0, and in the driver's seat for a berth in the semifinals, but, for a brief instant, everyone took their eyes off the scoreboard and stared, in awe, as the Brazilian maestro combined with Leo Messi for one, two, three rapid, triangulating passes.
