Barcelona creates history with stunning turnaround

FOOTBALL: Barcelona has become the first team to ever turn around a 4-0 deficit in Champions League history to advance to the quarter-finals with a 6-1 win over Paris St Germain.

Sergi Roberto's goal in the fifth-minute of injury time completed the most amazing of comebacks at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona.

Barca scored three times in the dying minutes to progress 6-5 on aggregate after losing 4-0 in Paris in the first leg.

Barca had earlier scored the opener after just three minutes when Luis Suarez headed in past goalkeeper Kevin Trapp from close range.

It then became 2-0 five minutes from the break when PSG defender Layvin Kurzawa prodded the ball into his own net.

Lionel Messi scored a third from the penalty spot minutes into the second half after Neymar was fouled.

PSG finally scored when Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani's powerful right-foot drive found the back of the net just after the hour mark.

But two goals from Neymar in three minutes -- one from a penalty -- brought the Spanish giants level on aggregrate before Roberto slotted the winner in from close range.
