Barca had their work cut out for them in the round of 16. They had to turn around a 4-0 deficit from the first leg in Paris if they were to progress to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League. And for each goal PSG might score at Camp Nou, the Catalans had to score 2 so as to avoid defeat by the away goals rule.
You knew they could do it. And they did it.
It was astonishing to watch as Messi and co produced a stunning comeback in the first leg to make history and progress to the next round for the 10th consecutive season at this stage of the competition.Anything can happen in this beautiful game. And FC Barcelona proved once again why they are one of the most formidable teams ever to grace the world of sports.
No wonder futbol aka football aka soccer is the most popular game in the world.
