6 takeaways from Barcelona's incredible and historic comeback against PSG

6 takeaways from Barcelona's incredible and historic comeback against PSG

For Enrique, whose side has scored 15 goals in four matches since that debacle - the answer would be Messi having an ethereal night supported by Neymar and Suarez. "We are focused on what we can do and what we are capable of. We obviously have to be ambitious, but we should not go insane from the first minute", Luis Suarez was quoted as saying by the Mirror. "It's not that easy because you can't stop a team like Barcelona for 180 minutes, so it will be sure that they'll have opportunities to score, you can't stop them forever".

I think the anticipation for the fans of Barcelona is the most intriguing story, because they believe!

Considering PSG's firepower, however, they will have every chance of scoring an away goal which would leave Barca needing six - especially as the hosts will have to take chances throwing men forward and will therefore be vulnerable to counter attacks.

Barcelona are without the injured duo of Aleix Vidal and Jeremie Mathieu for this one, but Luis Enrique's main decision to make is whether to play the 3-4-3 formation which worked so well against Celta at the weekend, or revert to the clubs typical 4-3-3 formation. Adrien Rabiot came out as a star to the whole of Europe with his performance, and Angel di Maria reminded people just how good he was.

Buck's lawyers contended the attorney general, by then Cornyn's successor Greg Abbott, broke a promise by contesting his case. Buck's case, which has traveled up and down the federal court system for decades, will now go back to the 5th U.S.


It rounded off a great 48 hours for Madrid, who came through a tough Champions League tie with Napoli courtesy of their own, Sergio Ramos-inspired, comeback. Since then, Barcelona have won their two knockout encounters with the Parisian club (2012/13, 2014/15). Meanwhile, Thiago Silva starts also, and will be an added boost from the first leg.

Barcelona have progressed past the Round of 16 in their last nine seasons, however it seems unlikely they will make it 10. The latter result, under Terry Venables, was enough to put them in the European Cup final which they then lost to Steaua Bucharest. Although, as we saw in their recent games against Celta Vigo and Sporting de Gijón, winning 5-0 and 6-1 are no problem for this Barca squad against La Liga competition.

A late Neymar double left Barcelona needing one more goal with five minutes of added time to play, and Sergi Roberto popped up to score the all-important victor.

But the Gabonese striker netted his 20th and 21st goals of the Bundesliga season in Saturday's 6-2 drubbing of Bayer Leverkusen to move back in front of Bayern marksman Robert Lewandowski at the top of the scoring charts.
