The Catalans' coach put their stunning comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League down to the never-say-die attitude of his players

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique lauded his team for always believing their incredible comeback against Paris Saint-Germain was possible.

'Yes we can!' - Barcelona as good as their word

The La Liga champions left it late to stun PSG with a 6-1 win at Camp Nou on Wednesday, sealing a 6-5 aggregate victory in the Champions League last 16, having lost the first leg 4-0.

With just three minutes remaining of normal time, Barca still needed three goals – and they arrived via a Neymar brace and Sergi Roberto's 95th-minute effort.

Afterwards, Luis Enrique said it was down to his team's faith that they would eventually secure a result, adding that it was truly a special night.

"I don't think there has been anyone who has stopped believing," the outgoing coach told beIN Sports.

"The team has been impressive. We have risked a lot and it has been worth it. There are endings that sometimes happen in football and today it touched us."

While Barca went 3-0 up early in the second half, Edinson Cavani's away goal appeared to have sealed the tie for PSG.

But Barca produced a stunning late flurry, Neymar scoring twice before his chipped pass for Roberto helped seal the comeback.

Luis Enrique added: "The key has been the faith the team have.

"With three goals needed in five minutes, we continued to push."
