Barcelona make Champions League history with stunning win over Paris Saint-Germain

Barcelona became the first side in Champions League and European Cup history to overturn a first-leg four-goal deficit. Sergi Roberto's winner deep into injury time sealed PSG's fate amid chaotic scenes at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona 6-1 Paris Saint-Germain (6-5 on agg.)
(Suarez 3', Kurzawa og 40', Messi pen 50', Neymar 88' 90' pen, Roberto 90'+5 - Cavani 62')

A goal in the fifth-minute of injury time from Sergi Roberto gave Barcelona a miraculous 6-1 win over Paris Saint Germain, as they reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League in breathtaking style.

Barcelona scored three times in the last seven minutes to go through 6-5 on aggregate having lost 4-0 in Paris in the first leg.

The home side were ahead after just three minutes when Luis Suarez headed past goalkeeper Kevin Trapp from close range.

It was 2-0 five minutes from half-time when PSG defender Layvin Kurzawa sliced the ball into his own net after Andres Iniesta had found the key pass with a clever backheel.

Lionel Messi made it 3-0 from the penalty spot just minutes into the second half after Neymar was fouled as Barcelona appeared poised to complete their unlikely comeback.

PSG's Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani silenced the Camp Nou with a powerful right-foot drive just after the hour mark, as PSG finally seemed to take control of the match.

But two goals from Neymar in three minutes - one from a controversially-awarded penalty - brought the Spanish giants level before Roberto lunged to secure the winner from close range.
