It was the comeback to end all comebacks and the Barcelona president rightly revelled in a historic night for the club after a memorable victory

Barcelona pulled off the biggest Champions League comeback in history by beating Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 at Camp Nou and club president Josep Maria Bartomeu believes it will be "remembered forever".

Luis Enrique's men were 4-0 down from their first meeting in Paris and few gave them a chance ahead of Wednesday's clash, with no side ever overcoming a four-goal first-leg deficit in a Champions League or European Cup knockout tie.

And Bartomeu is adamant that the club's achievement will be remembered as one for the ages.

"This is a historic achievement that will be remembered forever," he said at full-time. "This will give us more energy in the Champions League."
