Barcelona produce ‘greatest ever comeback’ – Twitter’s reaction

Date published: Thursday 9th March 2017 8:20

Barcelona produced one of sport’s most memorable comebacks and the greatest in Champions League history after overturning a four-goal deficit to reach the quarter-finals.

The Catalan giants looked dead and buried after losing the first leg 4-0 at Paris St Germain but defied the odds to triumph 6-1 in the return encounter to snatch a highly improbable 6-5 aggregate victory.

Sergi Roberto’s goal deep into stoppage time ensured Barca became the first team to hit back from a first-leg 4-0 defeat in the competition’s knockout stages – the feat all the more remarkable by the fact they still needed three goals heading into the 88th minute of the match.

Here, we look at the reaction from Twitter after an unforgettable night at the Nou Camp.
