Barcelona: Sergi Roberto scored in the fifth minute of stoppage time as Barcelona capped a sensational Champions League fightback to thrash Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 and reach the quarter-finals on Wednesday.

“I threw myself at it with everything,” Roberto told BeIN Sports Spain as his outstretched leg turned home Neymar´s cross.

Despite Luis Suarez´s early opener, a Layvin Kurzawa own goal and Lionel Messi´s penalty, Barca, who lost the first leg 4-0, looked down and out when Edison Cavani volleyed home what seemed to be the vital away goal for PSG.

However, Neymar restored Barca´s belief as he firstly fired home a sensational free-kick two minutes from time and then converted from the penalty spot.

And Roberto capped the biggest comeback in Champions League history when he stretched to turn home Neymar´s dinked cross to the delight of a near 100,000 at a rocking Camp Nou, making the score 6-5 on aggregate.

“It is a difficult night to explain with words,” said outgoing Barca boss Luis Enrique.
