Bookies bashed by Barca's miracle revival

Share

Barcelona did what seemed impossible in the second leg of its match with Paris Saint-Germain, blowing out the French side 6-1.

Barcelona were 4-0 down to Paris Saint-Germain from the first leg and with 88 minutes gone in the second leg, and with the score at 3-1, PSG having grabbed a vital goal which looked to have sealed things, they still needed three to get through.

"Neymar is great for Barcelona", he said.

While PSG's calamitous collapse certainly played a part in Barca's 6-1 victory, Luis Enrique's men produced some sublime football - led by Neymar - to score three goals in the final seven minutes and complete the the nearly impossible comeback.

The treble is very much on with the club already through to the Copa del Rey final.

Pique was quick to round on his club's critics after Wednesday's win, though.

Neither Broncos nor Texans will trade for Tony Romo
The Cowboys have already started looking for another backup, hosting 15-year veteran Josh McCown on a free-agent visit Wednesday. In the case of Romo , the Broncos and Texans don't seem interested in acquiring Romo at his current base salary of $14 million.

Luis Enrique, who is set to leave Barcelona at the end of the season, said his side always believed they would advance.

"There will be a day when we fall down, but we're still alive".

"You can talk about a miracle, an historic party".

"We are aware that everything is still to be decided", he added.

Boss Enrique was close to tears after the remarkable recovery propelled Barca into the last eight.

"We had chances to make it 3-2 and then the refereeing decisions, I don't know if they were right or not, but for sure they damaged us. He deserves all the praise".

Cleveland Browns release QB Robert Griffin
The biggest shock of the opening day of National Football League free agency, was Brock Osweiler's trade to the Cleveland Browns. The Cleveland Browns are still trying hard to trade for Jimmy Garoppolo and now have more draft picks to deal away.

Before his crucial strike in the epic second leg at the Nou Camp, Roberto had only scored five goals in all competitions since Pep Guardiola gave him his Barca debut in 2010 and had not netted this season.

The Argentina captain's contract runs out in 2018 and he has been linked with a move away.

Two goals, an assist, four successful dribbles and a willingness to take possession with more frequency than Lionel Messi, Thomas Meunier simply couldn't handle the Brazilian, and the support he received from both Lucas Moura and Angel Di Maria was nowhere near enough.

Samba superstar Neymar said: "It's the best game I've played in my life".

"This is the best game I have ever played". The team was pressing high and was looking desperate for the goals. A feat like this does everyone good and I'm delighted to enjoy a moment like this.

As Barca celebrate an unprecedented result, PSG were left to wonder what went wrong.
