It’s six months today since the unforgettable Champions League comeback against Paris Saint Germain.
The game that Barça went into with a seemingly unassailable 4-0 deficit to turn around – but when a stunning display of fighting spirit defied every adversity to battle back with a 6-1 victory, including three goals right at the end when all hope seemed to have been lost.
Luis Suárez raised a glimmer of hope by opening the scoring early on, then Andrés Iniesta and Leo Messi either side of the break made it 3-0. Could this really be happening?
Cavani’s goal for PSG seemed to have put an end to the dream, but there was a late twist to come when two goals from Neymar Jr and an assist from the same man for Sergi Roberto sent the Camp Nou wild on one of the most extraordinary nights ever at the stadium.
The celebrations that followed were an indescribable outpour of emotion. Miracles can happen and we had just witnessed one of the greatest!
