BARCELONA pulled off the most incredible comeback in Champions League round of 16 history with three goals in the final seven minutes to send PSG packing on a night of high drama.

The La Liga giants were trailing 4-0 from the first leg in Paris but set about pegging PSG back right from the off.

Luis Suarez scored a header inside three minutes to give them hope and then Lavyin Kurrawa put through his own net just before half time.

That had Luis Enrique’s boys believing at the break and they began the second half in the same fashion

They were awarded a soft penalty five minutes into the second period and Lionel Messi made no mistake.

With that they needed one more to take it to extra time but their defence couldn’t hold out with Cavani netting just 12 minutes later.

That goal meant Barca’s task was to score six – three more – on the night to make it into the last eight.

But they did it as Neymar struck twice with a wonderful free-kick before slotting a penalty.

Sergi Roberto then finished from a deep free kick in stoppage time to send the Nou Camp crazy.

They had been on course for their first elimination at this point since 2007, when they lost to Liverpool.

“This is a historic achievement that will be remembered forever,” Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu said.

“This will give us more energy in the Champions League.”

Ivan Rakitic said: “I cannot believe it. It was really impossible. 15-20 minutes after the game, it is crazy and unbelievable.

“Thank you to the team, to the people around the club and the fans. It was a really special day and it is hard to say something.

“The first game in Paris was hard for us, a lot of people spoke hard with our team but the reaction was special. It is history. We want to keep going on.

“We had to believe. 4-0 was hard, but it is football. We saw it in the Super Bowl, what is possible in sport. Today was crazy. This is Barcelona, the best team in the world and we want to continue our dream in the Champions League.”
