Paris Saint-Germain Blaming Rihanna for Their Epic Champions League Collapse?
Mar 12 2017
Barcelona overturned a 4-0 Champions League first leg deficit to win 6-5 on aggregate at the Nou Camp on Wednesday to reach the quarter-finals in the greatest comeback in the history of the tournament.
Three goals in the final few minutes saw Barca produce the greatest comeback in Champions League history with Sergi Roberto's 95th-minute goal. Now the world believed it can be done, on the 61 minute Edinson Cavani restored parity for PSG with a thumping finish to make it 5-3 on aggregate and further stretch the tie away from Barcelona.
"Football is a insane, unique sport. Children, and adults, here will never forget what happened here", he beamed during his post-match conference.
"When you win 4-0, then lose 6-1, it's very hard to accept", said PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who has poured millions of dollars into the French club. "In the first half it was more our fault than them playing well", Emery said. "A dominant victor in Paris in the previous game, the French champion scuttled out of the Camp Nou".
"I haven't spoken to the players yet, it's not the right time".
Barcelona hit the one pitfall that they needed to avoid.
"I don't think anyone stopped believing".
Barca manager Luis Enrique admitted his side faced a challenge in coming down from the cloud of emotion of their exploits on Wednesday but said he trusted his players to prepare appropriately for the game at Deportivo.
Enrique announced last week that he will be leaving Barca at the end of the campaign, having already won eight out of a possible 10 trophies since replacing Gerardo Martino as boss in 2014. Barcelona played like a team on a mission and it was their persistence and eagerness to win that got them through despite the odds being heavily stacked against them. "I hope it will serve as a lesson to everyone".
"We got a very good result in the first leg, but this evening, we didn't deserve to go through to the quarter-finals".
Someone has timed the chain of events from Neymar's free kick which made the scoreline 4-1 to Sergi Roberto's last minute strike for Barcelona and precisely 549 seconds passed between both goals.
"When we analyse it, it is true that we have missed a major opportunity", said the Spaniard, who had guided Sevilla to Europa League glory in three consecutive seasons before heading to Paris.
