Checkout The Best Comebacks In The History Of The Champions League

It was very hard for football clubs to cover up for losses because of the Champions League rule. However, some top teams defied all odds and shocked their opponents. Let us look at some of the greatest comebacks in the history of football.

4. Roma Vs Barcelona (2018):

In the first leg of the 2018 Champions League quarter finals, Barcelona defeated Roma 4-1 at the Camp Nou. When Barcelona went to Italy for the second leg, Roma put up a very impressive display after Edin Dzeko broke the deadlock. Few minutes later, De Rossi scored a penalty to give Roma their second goal of the match. 8 minutes to the end of the match, Kostas Manila's scored with his head to send Barcelona out of the competition. Roma won on away goals.

3. Liverpool Vs Barcelona (2019):

The first leg of the 2019 Champions League tie between Liverpool and Barcelona was very epic. Barcelona won 3-0 in the first leg, leaving the Liverpool players very frustrated. In the second leg, Liverpool put up their best and were able to register a 4-0 win against Barcelona, sending the Catalan Giants out of the competition.

2. Ajax Vs Tottenham Hotspur (2019):

Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-0 to Ajax in the first leg of the 2019 Champions League tournament. In the second half, Harry Kane was not available and Tottenham Hotspur almost lost hope of qualifying. 54 minutes into the second leg, Ajax added two more goals to the aggregate. Their hopes came back to life when Lucas Moura scored two goals. In the 95th minute, Lucas Moura completed his hat trick sending Ajax FC out of the tournament. Mauricio Pochettino couldn't hold himself as he broke down in tears and fell on his knees. 

1. Barcelona Vs PSG (2017):

In the first leg of the Champions League match between Barcelona and PSG, PSG won 4-0 on home soil. During the second leg, Barcelona struggled hard and registered 3 goals, giving them enough time to score one more. But a goal from Edison Cavani shattered their hopes of equalising. They were now supposed to score 3 goals and not concede any to qualify. In the 87th minute, Barcelona scored their fourth goal, followed by Neymar's free kick goal few minutes later. In the 95th minute, Sergi Roberto converted Neymar's free kick to score their sixth goal of the match. That goal automatically sent PSG out of the tournament.
