Sergi Roberto helped Barcelona pull off mission impossible
After trailing 4-0 from the first leg of their last-16 tie against Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona pulled off the near impossible by beating their French opponents 6-1 to progress to the quarter-finals with a 6-5 victory.
The incredible comeback at the Nou Camp had shades of 1999 when Manchester United scored two last-gasp goals to see off Bayern Munich and lift club football’s biggest prize.
Barcelona required three goals in the final few minutes and they did so when Roberto scored with virtually the last kick of the game.
