Barcelona did it. They fucking did it. They beat PSG with a 6-1 result, and advanced to the quarterfinals with one of the greatest comebacks in history despite conceding an away goal.

FIRST HALF

The first period featured intense pressure from the Blaugrana, who launched a barrage of attacks and scored the first goal after just three minutes thanks to Luis Suárez's effort to win a header and get the ball over the line. The hosts needed three more goals, at least, and continued to pressure PSG and create dangerous chances.

They almost went into halftime without scoring another goal, but captain Andrés Iniesta never gave up during a scramble inside the box, and his backheel cross ended with Layvin Kurzawa scoring an own goal.

At halftime Barça cut the deficit in half, but the job to do was still really tough in the final period.

SECOND HALF

Barça needed an early goal in the second half to have a shot at the miracle, and they got it when Thomas Meunier fouled Neymar inside the box. Lionel Messi buried the penalty to score the third for the Blaugrana. The miracle was on, but Edinson Cavani scored a beautiful goal, and PSG were in fantastic position to advance.

Barça needed three goals to make the miracle happen, and Neymar scored two late goals. Just one goal left for the miracle, AND SERGI ROBERTO SCORED IN THE LAST SECOND TO PUT THE BLAUGRANA IN THE QUARTERFINALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
