How Barcelona victory caused EARTHQUAKE after 6-1 PSG comeback

"How I felt they went wrong, over the 90 minutes is, they never played long once. Children, and adults, here tonight will never forget what happened", said Enrique after the game. "There is nothing else like it".

"I saw Sergi Roberto score a lot of goals when he was a kid, but I often joke with him that these days he couldn't score under a rainbow".

Lionel Messi's vehicle couldn't move for adoring fans bowing to the Argentine maestro, whilst two-goal hero Neymar partied with three-time Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton as Barcelona celebrated a historic 6-1 thrashing of Paris Saint-Germain.

It wasn't even a miracle "made in Messi". However, just three weeks after the first-leg thrashing, Barcelona silenced their critics and haters and proved that they are not just "any" team. It was his 64th goal in 65 games in the Nou Camp. In the second, we got to play better. Usually people leave 10 minutes before the final whistle.

Also based in Barcelona, Sport simply told the players: "YOU ARE LEGENDS".

Luis Suarez's header in the 3rd minute was followed up by Layvin Kurzawa's own goal just before half-time, as the French side appeared to be buckling under the pressure. With the away-goals rule, Barcelona now needed six to advance.

Then came the twist that no home supporter wanted to see.

The terrible outcome was made worse by the calamitous way PSG conceded three late goals.

Edinson Cavani scored his 35th goal in European and league competition this season, the first player to do so in Europe's top five leagues.

With two minutes left Neymar curled the ideal free-kick past Trapp to make it 4-1 on the night.

"We have only shown our personality at times, but the refereeing with two penalties for them and the penalty not given to us has had an impact", Emery said.

From a gambling and probability perspective, according to Westgate Las Vegas Superbook, Barcelona were 40-1 entering Wednesday to win the Champions League.

Two goals, an assist, four successful dribbles and a willingness to take possession with more frequency than Lionel Messi, Thomas Meunier simply couldn't handle the Brazilian, and the support he received from both Lucas Moura and Angel Di Maria was nowhere near enough. After a foul against Barca goalkeeper Ter Stegen, who has joined his mates in attack, it gets a last free kick in the very last minute. (For the record, he was clearly onside.) Barcelona wins.
