Barca had managed to get themselves three goals in front after 50 minutes and the impossible seemed possible, seemed probable, before they conceded. Then it emphatically appeared over and it was only on 88 minutes that Neymar scored the first of his goals, before creating the decisive third with effectively the last kick of the match and with goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen having abandoned his role as he played as a striker.
Neymar said he would score twice. No-one expected the Brazilian to leave it so late. Barca coach Luis Enrique – tired, haggered and on his way out at the end of the season and broken after the first leg of this last-16 tie – said if his team could concede four goals in Paris then they could score six to reach the quarter-finals. And they did score six.
Here is a summary of the match between Barcelona and Paris. Paris has simply been too weak and has missed too many actions, Barcelona took the opportunity to make a remontada that will remain engraved in history.
