Barcelona Thrashes PSG 6 – 1 (Agg 6-5) to Proceed to UEFA Champions League Quaterfinals

FC Barcelona has again proven that it has what it takes to become European Champions.

After losing 4 – 0 to French side Paris Saint-Germain, the team had little hopes of qualifying for the Quarlterfinals of the UEFA Champions League.

The team needed at least four goals without reply from their opponents before 90 minutes, to stand a chance of qualifying.

Barca quickly got to work, hitting the back of the net two times in the first half. First from Luis Suarez and another from Kurzawa.

Five minutes into the second half, Lionel Messi extended their lead by 3 goals.

PSG’s Edinson Cavani hit the net at the 62nd minute of the game, extending the number of goals Barcelona needed to qualify to three.

At the 88th minute, Neymar Jr scored for Barcelona, adding another one three minutes later.

Even with a 5 – 1 scoreline, Barcelona, would have steal been kicked out if not for a last minute goal by Roberto to guaranty the team a spot in the final eight.

    Arsene Wenger were you watching?. That is how you do a comeback.

    Barcelona – “més que un club” (more than just a club.)

    Luis Enrigue said it tonight. “If they can score four against us, we will score six against them.” Can he retrieve that resignation letter now?

    Un-effing-believable. Never seen anything like this. ‘Pool versus AC Milan twelve years ago doesn’t come close.

    The other teams will be cursing PSG. Cavani is such a useless finisher.

    Suarez is still a cheat. Nothing has changed with Count Dracula.

    How can you not love the beautiful game?

      I love girls that know their football, so few of us?

      “‘Pool versus AC Milan twelve years ago doesn’t come close.”

      You are right, in terms of sheer magnitude and ridiculousness, Istanbul 2005 doesn’t come close. But damn, Barcelona had 90 minutes to turn it around, Liverpool had just 45. And don’t forget the Milan team Liverpool were up against. They had Maldini, Kaka, Cafu, Dida, Nesta, Shevy, Crespo, Seedorf, Rui Costa and Pirlo in that squad. It was an absolutely star-studded team they were up against. And remember, Milan would have been back-to-back champs heading into that final if not for fucking Deportivo!

      Well, still, as Barca fan, I’ll rate this higher than Istanbul 2005. This is just unbelievable!!! I just can’t right now. Messidependencia still exists but Suarez and bloody Neymar won this for us!! And Sergi Roberto of all fückin people!!!!!!
      Lorrrdddd!!!

      How can you not love the beautiful game indeeeed!!!!!

      Nobody sensed match fixing? This match was obviously sold. The penalties? The ref? Last minute goals to avoid being knocked out. C’mon. You won’t tell me PSG players just came unprepared to lose except for the obvious reason, they’ve been paid to. Barca can’t just stand being out of the league at this stage, with Ronaldo/Madrid there to mock them? Oh pls! Football politics of course exist. Barca just needed this win. Did PSG really see themselves winning the league? No! So what did they stand to lose? Nothing!

      Ottawa Queen,
      No, nobody sensed match fixing. It wasn’t fixed.
      Yes, there were matches in the past that raised questions. 2009 semi-final against Chelsea; the Arsenal tie where Van Persie received a second yellow for not hearing the referee’s whistle; 2006 2nd leg semi-final where Kaka’s goal was disallowed for some inexplicable reasons, etc.
      But this match was different,
      The penalty calls were fair; those were goal-bound situations if the defenders didn’t stop Neymar and Suarez.
      There was no red card given.
      The first two goals were a bit scrappy. The struggle shows how prepared PSG was,
      Ter Stegen stood no chance on that Cavani’s goal. Remember he had hit the woodwork. You don’t play like that when the match is fixed.
      Neymar’s first goal came in the 88th minute. And they needed two more after that. Why wait for that long if there was an arrangement?
      At first I thought Sergio Roberto was slightly offside when the assist for the last goal came. But on the replay I saw he was not.
      As a matter of fact Enrique’s Barca hardly enjoy any special treatment from the officials. They never do. They work hard for every goal.
      As Anon noted above, they should review that resignation letter. Tell us he meant to resign in three years from June (lol), He doesn’t produce the seductive Tikitaka anymore but he gets the results.
      Treble is still possible.
      Forca Barca!
