Barca are the first side in Champions League and European Cup history to overturn a four-goal first-leg deficit, after defeating PSG 6-1 on Wednesday.

Barcelona made Champions League history on Wednesday, overcoming a four-goal first-leg deficit against PSG to advance to the quarter-finals.

Luis Enrique's side were the first in Champions League and European Cup history to rally back from four down after the opening match.

Sergi Roberto was the hero for Barca, scoring in the 94th minute to complete what many viewed as an unrealistic feat before the match began.

Neymar had a double, while Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez also found the net for Barcelona. PSG's Layvin Kurzawa was credited with an own goal.
