Champions League: Stories of comebacks from both close and far

The first came from the penalty spot in the 61st minute after Joao Cancelo brought down Ousmane Dembele. PSG was losing 2-3 at the start of the match. At that point, PSG embraced Enrique's never-give-up mantra. It is true that Ronaldo Araujo's red card changed the tie. Enrique trusted Bradley Barcola enough to start the 21-year-old, but Barcola went down when Araujo tried to stop Mbappe with his hand. Araujo and Pau Cubarsi were so adept at stopping Mbappe in Paris. Despite missing the free kick, PSG prevailed. In the end, Barcelona had three shots on goal to PSG's nine and had less possession. Arguably the worst call of the night, if not the draw, was to stop Barcola with his hand because as the central defense scrambled, Cubarsi covered.

Champions League: Stories of comebacks from both close and far

"The group still has faith and believes in God. And still has faith in its ability to succeed. Then you can observe what happens. Luis Enrique at that moment analysed the comeback of the Champions League. In 2017. Although less spectacular than the one that his the team wrote on Tuesday, Paris St. Germain (PSG) will be indifferent, Enrique even said that if they score four, we would reach six, and PSG's Champions League race ended in a tie , but seven seasons of suffering ended with a night victory 4-1 and a 6-4 aggregate victory Perhaps this is a sign that they have not learned from their 21. 22 defeats to Real Madrid and Barcelona Moreover, they look more impressive than in the 0-3 aggregate defeat to Bayern last season. " said Mbappe. It was PSG's seventh defeat in the first round of the Champions League in the previous seven years. 


 

In March 2017, after that strange but wonderful night at Camp Nou, Enrique declared that "football is for crazy, crazy people". the construction and restoration work at the Camp Nou made it look like Kylian Mbappe had to climb over piles to get to the seats where the away team's supporters were seated at the Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys, where Barcelona are playing. Enrique warned everyone present that they would remember that night for the rest of their lives. The travelling PSG supporters most likely as well. When Mbappe went on a rampage for his eighth Champions League goal of the year, he was already on a yellow card. Marc-Andre ter Stegen twice prevented PSG from scoring, but the Barcelona custodian was unable to stop Mbappe after Jules Kounde's clumsy deflection rebounded and fell to him. It was the 89th minute and Mbappe may have been spared a second booking as PSG already went into a three-goal lead. He may still say goodbye to Paris, but Barcelona may have to see a lot more of him after that. Mbappe, who was quiet for most of the game, still scored twice. 


 

The first came from the penalty spot in the 61st minute after Joao Cancelo brought down Ousmane Dembele. PSG was losing 2-3 at the start of the match. At that point, PSG embraced Enrique's never-give-up mantra. It is true that Ronaldo Araujo's red card changed the tie.

Arguably the worst call of the night, if not the draw, was to stop Barcola with his hand because as the central defense scrambled, Cubarsi covered.


 

Overcoming the goal advantage but a player in the 29th minute would be too much. especially when it required the sacrifice of the bright Lamin Yamal. Dembele equalized after Barcola found Dembele with a cross that Mbappe couldn't connect to. Cancelo didn't see him coming and a split second was all the former Barcelona striker - who he had taunted throughout the match - needed. Raphinha's 12th-minute goal was only disallowed in the 40th minute, despite PSG's early dominance.
