Football Bloody Hell Barcelonas Seven Minutes Of Craziness Is Why We Love This Sport

After their first-legs of the Round of 16 clashes in the Champions League, Arsenal and Barcelona found themselves staring at early exits in the tournament following their crushing losses. While Arsenal lost 1-5 to Bayern Munich in the first-leg, Barcelona had plenty to worry about after losing 0-4 to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

Both Arsenal and Barcelona needed a much-improved performance in the second-leg to stay in contention of advancing in Europe's most prestigious club tournament. And as Arsenal endured one of their most humiliating losses at the Emirates and eventually crashed out of the tourney, Barcelona came up with their own recipe of success while scripting a sensational comeback at the Nou Camp.

The Spanish giants provided the craziest seven minutes of football ever seen while scoring three goals to beat their French opponents, having overcome a 4-0 aggregate first-leg deficit.

Riding on a brilliant strike from Luis Suarez and an own goal from PSG defender Layvin Kurzawa, Barcelona went in 2-0 up at half-time with little hopes of staying alive in the competition. But, when Lionel Messi scored a 50th minute penalty, the Catalan fans began to believe.

That is history. And this is the immediate reaction. Absolutely bloody amazing. What have we just seen?!?! #FCBPSG @btsportfootball pic.twitter.com/6e68BZVq9j

However, an Edinson Cavani strike in the 62nd minute didn't just extinguish the hopes of Barca fans, but also demoralised their players. With almost no self-belief after Cavani's goal, the Barcelona players told PSG midfielder Marco Verratti that "the match was finished".

Fast-forward to the final seven minutes of the match when Neymar banged in a wonderful free-kick, then converted a penalty - before midfielder Sergi Roberto touched home Neymar's cross. Luis Enrique's men defeated PSG 6-1 (6-5 on aggregate) while sending ripples across the football fraternity.

On behalf of Arsenal, I would like to thank everyone at PSG for really taking the heat off.

It was the first time ever in the Champions League history that a team had overcome a four-goal deficit. But it was more than that. It was so, so much more than that as the disbelieving looks on the Barca players, the staff, coaches and fans showed.

The best turnaround ever in football bar none #Barca

This club, these players, have achieved pretty much everything there is in football. But, they had never accomplished something so extraordinary before.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

FOOTBALL, BLOODY HELL! This game never fails to cut through the hype, the money, the cynicism, the commercialism, to become a sport again. It is exactly why we play it, watch it, talk about it, and definitely why we write about it as well.

Well, seen a lot in football. But not much more remarkable than that. No doubt: I feel a little sorry for PSG. But fitba. Bloody hell #Barça
