Barcelona have completed one of the most remarkable comebacks in Champions League history.

Luis Suarez made it 4-1 on aggregate after just three minutes before Layvin Kurzawa’s own goal, five minutes before half-time, put the Catalan giants 2-0 up on the night.

Lionel Messi then rifled home a 50th-minute penalty, meaning Barça required just one more goal to make the score 4-4 on aggregate.

But 12 minutes later, Edinson Cavani appeared to have put the game beyond the home side’s reach with an emphatic finish.

That made it 5-3 on aggregate to the Parisians. Barcelona, in order to advance to the Champions League quarter-finals, now needed to score another three goals.

Cavani, roaring after scoring his decisive goal, was mobbed by his euphoric teammates inside the Camp Nou. Unai Emery, meanwhile, was going crazy on the touchline.

They all presumed it was job done.
