  • The greatest ever Champions League comeback How it happened minute-by-minute

Neymar described his two-goal display as the "best game" of his career as he inspired the greatest comeback in Champions League history Barcelona thrashed Paris Saint-Germain 6-1.

Neymar scored twice and set up Sergi Roberto's remarkable 95th-minute victor as Barca completed the biggest Champions League comeback of all time from a 4-0 first leg deficit in a 6-1 win.

"This is a sport for mad people".

Pique dedicated the most awesome win in Champions League history to coach Luis Enrique, who will quit Barca at the end of the season.

"The first half was our fault and we didn't manage to press or do things with the ball".

PSG coach Unai Emery's strategy of not pressuring Barcelona backfired, as his team sat back and passively let the hosts hem them into their box.

Lionel Messi's penalty five minutes into the second period had the Nou Camp on its feet but Cavani's strike in the 62nd was a sucker punch to Barca's ambitions from which Luis Enrique's side took a while to recover.

The soccer superstar didn't celebrate Sergi Roberto's game-winning goal with his teammates, as is soccer's custom, but with Barcelona's most ardent fans at Nou Camp.

The goal from Cavani meant that Barca now needed three more goals to stay in the competition.

Luis Enrique, who is set to leave Barcelona at the end of the season, said his side always believed they would advance.

Emery won three-straight Europa League titles with Sevilla between 2014 and 2016 and he looked to have secured another famous European victory as late as the 95th minute on Wednesday.

"We never stopped believing, even the fans, who are normally the most pessimistic". Messi made no mistake with the penalty to rifle home his 11th Champions League goal of the season. Barcelona played like a team on a mission and it was their persistence and eagerness to win that got them through despite the odds being heavily stacked against them.

"I left some ligaments on the pitch but it was worth it!" he said.

Roberto's last-gasp heroics clinched the 6-1 win the Spanish giants requited to overturn the mammoth four-goal deficit from the first leg in France.

"In terms of emotion, intensity it is something that fits the club very well and I love to enjoy as a coach". We had nothing to lose today, we had lost everything in Paris.
