Neymar Barcelona forward mocks PSG players Rabiot and Kurzawa

"The best match of my career", said Neymar, who scored two goals and set up two more as Barcelona beat Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 in the second leg to become the first team to overhaul a 4-0 loss in the Champions League.

Neymar's late heroics inspired a thrilling 6-1 victory to overturn a 4-0 deficit from the first leg, the Brazilian scoring twice and setting up Sergi Roberto's victor deep into stoppage time. Despite Luis Suarez's early opener, a Layvin Kurzawa own goal and Lionel Messi's penalty, Barca, who lost the first leg 4-0, looked down and out when Edison Cavani volleyed home what seemed to be the vital away goal for PSG.

"It's insane. After Paris, many people spoke hard about our team but tonight was special, we made history".

Pique dedicated the most awesome win in Champions League history to coach Luis Enrique, who will quit Barca at the end of the season. PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was blunt in his summary.

Barca manager Luis Enrique's gesticulated wildly on the touchline while nearly 100,000 fanatical supporters inside the Nou Camp roared their side on, but their hopes seemed lost, even when Brazilian playmaker Neymar drilled home a rocket-fuelled free kick on 88 minutes.

In a Twitter post, Barcelona compiled a photo slide of the scenes at Cam Nou at the moment of Roberto's goal and after that. I spoke to the Barca players - they told me it was over.

"I think that no one would have believed in it".

"It's the best game I've played in my life, because of the whole story, the goals and for what it means to the team", the Brazilian said. "Having said that, we mustn't blame the referee, because we weren't able to play our game".

France's leading sports publication L'Équipe have reported that the Ligue 1 club were forced to bin a documentary they were filming in Spain about their Champions League tie with Barcelona after they were mercilessly beaten off the park by the Catalan giants.

Qatar-backed PSG have invested heavily in a squad created to compete at the highest level, yet once again they were found wanting against the very best and were eliminated by Barcelona in the knockout stages for the third time in five years.

"I hope this setback will not weigh on us mentally", winger Hatem Ben Arfa said. He added: "This will give us more energy in the Champions League".

On other results, Borussia Dortmunt F.C dismantled Benfica 4-0 to progress to the quarter finals on a 4-1 aggregate win.
