Neymar and Sergi Roberto produced one of the most memorable moments in Champions League history on Wednesday night.

You know how it went. In the 95th minute of their tie with Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona needed one more goal or else they would have exited the tournament.

Then Neymar floated in the delivery that Roberto turned home, and chaos ensued.

Barca’s 6-1 win is already being spoken about as the greatest comeback in Champions League history. Even better than Liverpool’s in the 2005 Champions League final against AC Milan.

It is hard to argue with that opinion. The Blaugrana needed to score four goals to have any chance of progressing - and that number became six when Edinson Cavani scored in the second half.

Barca hadn’t even scored four times by the 87th minute, let alone six. And then the miracle happened.

Neymar’s free-kick in the 88th minute appeared to be nothing more than a consolation goal, but then he scored a penalty three minutes later and fans started to believe.

And when he picked the ball up outside PSG’s box and sent it in with his left foot, Roberto was there to steer the ball home.

FIFA 17 MOTM cards

Neither player will ever have to buy a drink in Catalonia again after their heroics. And they’ve been further awarded by EA Sports, who today released their upgraded Man of the Match cards for FIFA 17 Ultimate Team.

Roberto, whose original rating is 79, sees it rise to 85 while Neymar’s rating shoots up from 92 to 97.

Also receiving upgrades are Sergio Ramos, who scored in Real Madrid’s 3-1 win over Napoli, and Arturo Vidal, who scored a brace as Bayern Munich humiliated Arsenal 5-1.
