Barcelona 6-5 Paris Saint-Germain, 2016/17

If you had to choose one game to act use an advert for the sport, it would have to be the encounter between two of European's giants going toe-to-toe with each other right up until the last.

The first-leg alone was an unfathomable brilliant spectacle to behold, as the Parisians came out 4-0 winners at the Stade de France, utterly humiliating Luis Enrique's team.

Then came the main event. If there was ever one team you'd back to overturn a four-goal deficit, it would have to be this Barca side who have the calibre of players that seem to be able to achieve the impossible.

Arguably the greatest comeback in Champions League history commenced after 40 minutes, when an own goal added to Luis Suárez's header to put the Catalonian side 2-0 up at the break. 

Lionel Messi then scored a penalty to get everybody believing that they will do the impossible, only for their hopes to be seemingly diminished by Edison Cavani, when he scored to make it 5-3 on aggregate. 

La Blaugrana now needed three goals to progress to the quarter finals and got two when Neymar went to work, reducing the deficit with a superb curling free-kick and a penalty kick.

Then five minutes into added time, an unlikely hero in Sergi Roberto was there to guide it home from a Neymar cross to spark wild celebrations from all the Barca faithful.
