29 September 1993: FC Barcelona 4 Dynamo Kyiv 1

After claiming their first ever European Cup the previous season, Johan Cruyff’s team were in danger of exiting the competition at the very first hurdle in 1993/94. A 3-1 defeat in the Ukraine in the first leg of their first round tie against Dynamo Kyiv put Barça up against the ropes. However, a memorable night of football in the second leg saw the blaugranes squeeze through thanks to a 4-1 win. Laudrup scored the opener, Bakero scored twice before Ronald Koeman grabbed the all-important fourth.

12 March 1997: FC Barcelona 5 Atlético Madrid 4

The second leg of the Copa del Rey quarter-final tie between Barça and the reigning league and cup holders Atlético Madrid was finely poised after a 2-2 draw in the first leg at the Vicente Calderón. Nobody could have been prepared for the madness that was about to erupt on that March evening. A first half hat-trick from Pantic put Atlético in control. Six minutes into the second and they led 4-1, Pantic finding the net yet again. However, a hat-trick from Ronaldo and a late winner from Pizzi saw Barça pull off one of the most remarkable comebacks in Camp Nou history.

18 April 2000: FC Barcelona 5 Chelsea 1

A new millennia and another comeback: Louis Van Gaal’s side had lost 3-1 at Stamford Bridge in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Chelsea. Goals from Rivaldo and Figo gave Barça a 2-0 lead and hope but Tore-André Flo pulled one back for Gianluca Vialli's side, adding to the two he scored in the first leg to swing the tie back in favour of the Londoners. A goal from substitute Dani sent the tie into extra-time and efforts from Kluivert and Rivaldo sealed the blaugranes’ place in the semis.

21 August 2010: FC Barcelona 4 Sevilla 0

Pep Guardiola’s third season in charge saw his team open their campaign with a Spanish Super Cup clash against Sevilla. The Copa del Rey champions from the previous campaign took a 3-1 lead in the tie after defeating an under strength Barça side in the first leg in the Sánchez Pizjuán. By the time the second leg came around, the current league champions were back to full strength and the return game at Camp Nou witnessed an own goal Konko and a hat-trick from Leo Messi to give the blaugranes their first silverware of the campaign.

12 March 2013: FC Barcelona 4 AC Milan 0

16 years to the day since the comeback in the Copa del Rey against Atlético, Camp Nou witnessed another, this time in the Champions League against AC Milan. A 2-0 defeat at the San Siro saw Barça on the brink of elimination at the last 16 stage of the competition. Once again Leo Messi was the spark that ignited the response at Camp Nou. The Barça number 10 scored twice in the first half to level the tie on aggregate. After 10 minutes of the second, David Villa put Barça ahead and Jordi Alba’s injury time strike rounded off another memorable March evening in Barcelona.
