Barcelona 6 -1 PSG: The Game in Tweets

After an unforgettable night in Barcelona, we give you a play by play account of the game courtesy of Twitter…

On Wednesday night we witnessed history, as Barcelona recovered from a 4-0 first leg deficit to send PSG crashing out of the Champions League and themselves into the quarter-finals.

Below, we’ve sourced the best tweets during the craziest 90 minutes of football ever for your viewing pleasure…

We shared the starting XIs pre-match, with the Barcelona team looking very attacking and PSG missing one of their star players in Angel Di Maria:

Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez got the game’s first goal…

An own goal from PSG defender Kurzawa before half time had us all dreaming of a comeback. None more so than former Barcelona forward Gary Lineker…

Lionel Messi then calmly dispatched a penalty to make it 3-0 to the hosts and we were all beginning to suspect we could be witnessing history…

Meanwhile in Manchester…

Then, the moment all Barca fans were dreading. Edinson Cavani scored a crucial away goal which meant the home side now needed to score 3 more instead of just 1…

Lineker is not impressed with the away goals rule, as it happens…

The game crept into the last 10 minutes and PSG thought they’d got the job done…

Then, the craziest 6 minutes of Champions League football since Instanbul in 2005. Neymar fires in a free kick on the 88th minute to leave Barca needing two goals to progress…

In the 91st minute, Suarez is “pulled down” in the box and the referee awards a penalty to Barca. Replays suggest the Uruguayan dived…

Nevertheless, Brazilian forward Neymar stepped up and slotted home to make it 5-1 to Barcelona, leaving them just over 4 minutes to find that essential sixth goal…

We had some words of encouragement for Barca…

Then, it happened. A lovely chip into the box from Neymar saw substitute Sergi Roberto latch onto the ball and score to make it 6-1. Here’s how the lads in the BT Sport studio reacted…

Just seconds later, the final whistle blew and history was made…

The result has already prompted many to argue the case for the greatest ever sporting comeback and we gave you the chance to have your say…

Whether it is or isn’t the greatest comeback is surely a matter of opinion, but it’s highly unlikely we’ll see a 90 minutes quite like that for a long time, if ever again. Where were you when Barca came back from the abyss?
