#6) PSG vs Manchester United (2019) Round of 16
Manchester United seemed down at out after PSG took a 2-0 lead at the Old Trafford. To make matters worse for them, their best player Paul Pogba had been sent off with a Red Card which meant that he would not be able to take part in the second leg.
A spate of injuries soon followed and United found themselves without 10 players. They were forced to pick academy players in their squad to make up the numbers. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had said a day before that there was no such thing as a lost cause.
Not many believed him however. After all, no side had ever overturned a 2-0 deficit from the first leg in Champions League history. Once the whistle blew though, Manchester United vindicated their manager’s confidence.
By half time, Manchester United led 2-1. They just needed one more goal to win the match. Fortunately for them, they received a penalty in extra time. Marcus Rashford scored from the spot to give Manchester United their greatest night in the post-Alex Ferguson Era.
#5) Barcelona vs Chelsea (2000) Quarter Final
Barcelona’s journey to Stamford Bridge did not go as planned. The London side piled the misery on the visitors by hammering them 3-1. With one foot in the Semi-final, Chelsea were confident of seeing Barcelona through.
However, Barcelona tightened the screws around Chelsea at Camp Nou as they looked to do the impossible. Goals from Rivaldo, Luis Figo and Dani Garcia helped Barcelona negate Chelsea’s advantage. Fortunately for Chelsea, T.A. Flo’s 60th minute strike kept Chelsea in the game.
Extra time followed and Chelsea hoped to pull their socks up. Unfortunately for them, Barcelona ruthlessly carried on from where they left. Rivaldo added another goal to his tally in the 99th minute before Kluivert hit the final coffin in the 104th minute to end Chelsea’s hopes.
Barcelona completely outclassed Chelsea to win the match 5-1 and script and incredible comeback. The Spanish side had ensured their qualification to the Semi-final by completely destroying their opponents when no one expected it.
