Barcelona has experience staging a ‘comeback,’ having done so against PSG in 2017.
With a 4-0 deficit from the first leg, the Blaugrana seemed to be on their way to their earliest Champions League exit in over a decade.
On the other hand, Messi and co had other ideas, scoring six times in the return leg at the Camp Nou to wipe out the Ligue 1 side’s commanding lead.
No team has ever qualified in the Champions League after losing a home game by three goals. On the other hand, Barcelona is the first team in competition history to come back from a four-goal deficit.
Barcelona is coming off a spectacular comeback victory over Sevilla in the 2020-21 Copa Del Rey, though it wasn’t their best.
Barcelona had it all to do at home last week after losing the first leg of their semi-final 2-0 in Seville.
They did it in style, winning 3-0 in extra time to eliminate Sevilla from the competition.
For that, they had to walk an extra mile. However, the victory provides a massive morale boost for Barcelona, which was just what they wanted going into this game.
