Video: Have Barcelona Got Dynamo to Thank For Famous PSG Comeback?

Forgive us for thinking that Neymar was the inspiration behind Barcelona’s famous comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Luis Enrique’s men produced the greatest comeback in the competition’s history when they overturned a 4-0 deficit from the first leg of their last-16 tie by winning 6-1 in the second leg.

It was all the more amazing because Edinson Cavani’s second half away goal for PSG meant Barca needed to score three more to qualify for the quarter-finals.

And that looked unthinkable as they trailed 5-3 on aggregate with just two minutes of normal time remaining in the game.

Some described it as magical – and that literally might have been true after learning that British magician Dynamo worked with the Spanish giants shortly before the big game:

Maybe it’s Dynamo that Barcelona have to thank for giving them arguably their greatest ever European result?

They now face up against Juventus in the quarter-finals, with the first leg in Italy taking place tomorrow night before the return leg a week later.
