Ten great Champions League comebacks
Barcelona 4-0 Milan (2012/13)
Barcelona dubbed the San Siro a ‘potato field’ when they slumped to a 2-0 defeat in Milan in the first leg of their round-of-16 tie. Undeterred, Xavi quickly came to the realisation that for all this team’s remarkable achievements, they didn’t have a proper comeback on their CV yet. They can now check that one off. A Messi double helped them to a resounding 4-0 victory, becoming the first side in the competition’s history to reverse a two-goal first-leg deficit without the help of an away goal.
