Manchester United produced a Champions League comeback to savour last night, overturning a two-goal deficit against Olympiakos thanks to the predator instincts of Dutch master Robin van Persie.

Van Persie's heroics provide the perfect example to trawl back through the last decade to profile the five occasions where first leg disaster has been turned into second-leg triumph, with no shortage of drama.

European nights can often define not only a single season but a club's whole identity, just ask United fans about that famous trip to Barcelona in 1999.

As we look forward to the quarter-final draw its time to reflect on six occasions when a two-goal advantage has not been enough when it comes to crunch time in a colossal European tie, with special mentions for a few surprise contenders that may not be the first names which spring to mind.
