When this happens, the outcome can be truly magical and this is at the heart of all sport. Barcelona had done it, somehow.
Completesportsnigeria.com's JAMES AGBEREBI relives SIX memorable UEFA Champions League comebacks at Camp Nou following Barcelona's stunning 6-1 win over PSG on Wednesday... Buy, yes, yes, it had.
"At half-time we spoke about scoring a third and we did, but then Cavani scored. In the last few minutes they played all or nothing and they have beaten us".
Barcelona only had five minutes to find a victor and complete the flawless fairy tale or watch PSG walk into the quarter finals on their expense.
The barely believable scoreboard at full time.
Barcelona went into their second leg semi-final clash against Chelsea with the confidence of overturning the 1-0 first leg deficit at Stamford Bridge. Ironically, they actually looked like Barcelona. I simply have no words to explain how it felt. A mess, sure, but a lifeline. "After the game, we are all upset", said the Qatari. As it bounced and defenders waited, Luis Suárez didn't, leaping to head over Kevin Trapp from close range.
Despite a commanding lead going into Wednesday's return-leg fixture at the iconic Camp Nou Stadium, the Germany worldwide is well aware the Catalans can't be counted out.
Mexican Foreign Secretary Skips State Dept., Goes Straight to White House
The foreign secretary explained to the paper that he told Secretary of Sate Rex Tillerson himself on the phone Wednesday night. The disconnect comes amid reports that the State Department has been sidelined in matters of foreign policy.
Neymar found the back of the net twice late-on.
Fans tried to block the players' cars, and one supporter was injured when he was struck by Thiago Motta's sports auto.
Marco Verratti stands dejected at the end.
"We played with responsibility, with joy, with pressure and with the ball". There was not much respite, yet nor, in truth, was there clarity from the Catalans. They were on the brink of going out and a good Napoli side were expected to finish the job off at Stamford Bridge. The five-time Champions League winners were then awarded a dubious penalty which Lionel Messi converted to go 3-0 up. They took possession of the ball and the match stayed mostly on the Paris Saint-Germain side of the field.
Sergi Roberto's 95th minute victor completed Barca's comeback from a 4-0 first leg deficit at the Camp Nou on Wednesday. Marquinhos was passive, Iniesta flicked it up with his heel and Layvin Kurzawa deflected into his own goal.
"Of course it's not easy at the Camp Nou, and it's maybe the best attack in the world".
"PSG and the referee were burned by stage fright", they claimed. Messi even missed a penalty in the 49th minute. This is not the moment to talk of this.

For PSG coach Unai Emery, the dream which looked set for a place in the quarter-finals was shattered in the most unexpected of outcomes.
Midfielder Ivan Rakitic said: "It's insane".
Perhaps Barcelona will be thinking the same after their comeback against PSG.
However, it seems Enrique's celebrations came at a cost.
Already a star, Neymar went supernova.
"We left Paris very down and now this is incredible". Incredibly, amazingly, historically, astonishingly, they could too.
England 'just starting' after record-equalling win
