While Sergi Roberto stole headlines with his late winner, it was Neymar who orchestrated Barcelona's historic comeback against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night.

Having lost 4-0 in the first leg of the Champions League last 16, the Catalonians faced the impossible task of becoming the first team to overturn such a deficit.

And would you believe it, they did just that.

Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi both chipped in with goals to make the comeback seem possible but no one came close to matching Neymar's contribution.

The Brazilian not only won the penalty that Messi converted, but scored a three-minute brace in the final few minutes and assisted Roberto's winner with an inch-perfect cross.

Messi is usually the one who makes the difference in these types of games but on this occasion, it was Neymar who won the game for Barcelona.

Such was the quality of the 25-year-old's performance that Steven Gerrard described it as one of the best he's ever seen in the BT Sport studio.

"World-class players have big moments at important times," he said alongside Rio Ferdinand and Michael Owen. "Neymar put in probably one of the best performances I've ever seen."

Nailed it. Neymar's emotion was there for all to see upon the final whistle, with the Brazil star almost in tears as he looked around at the rapturous Camp Nou.

Because of his efforts - and others, of course - Barcelona had just pulled off the greatest comeback in Champions League history.

So you can hardly blame him for being in an exciteable mood after the game, evidenced by the way he absolutely ruined Adrien Rabiot on Instagram.

In the screenshot below, with the original picture believed to have been taken after the first leg, Neymar used 'laughing crying' emojis to mock the fact PSG squandered a 4-0 lead.


That's what you get for being cocky, Adrien.

It's now onwards and upwards for Barcelona, who will feel they can push on for La Liga and Champions League glory following their miraculous victory.

Joining them in the quarter-finals are Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, who all won by heavy margins in their respective last 16 encounters this week.
