The normally mild-mannered Lionel Messi exploded with emotion on Wednesday as his club Barcelona sealed one of the greatest comebacks in the history of sport.
Barcelona overturned a 4-0 deficit against Paris Saint-Germain to win the tie 6-5 over two legs, with the Spanish side’s final three goals coming in the last seven minutes.
Booking its place in the quarter-finals with some style, Barcelona will be difficult to defeat over two legs in the coming months given the team’s momentum.
Messi played a key role in the destruction of PSG having converted a second-half penalty. But it was Sergi Roberto’s last gasp winner in the fifth minute of added time that Messi enjoyed the most, as the video below demonstrates.
The draw for the quarter-final will be made on March 17.
