How Barcelona's winner against PSG sounded in a bunch of different languages

"We have never been cautious and we want to win the three competitions", said Luis Enrique, whose side will play Alaves in the King's Cup final in May. "There is nothing else like it".

Luis Enrique rattled the words off, trying to make sense of the game he had just watched, his pace quickening until eventually he stopped, sat back, puffed his cheeks out and said: "And that's it, here we are".

It wasn't even a miracle "made in Messi".

Despite Neymar, Suarez and Messi's heroics, it was Roberto who proved to be Barca's unlikely hero as he choose the flawless time to score his first goal of the season. We had that mourning on Valentine's Day, and we were given a good going over. It was all or nothing for them in the final minutes.

After the Barcelona match, PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi was asked if Emery was still the right man for the job. Three of those were from kick-off after conceding Barcelona goals.

Then came the twist that no home supporter wanted to see. But, unlike the French champion, the Bavarians made its advantage count in leg two, crushing a deflated Arsenal 10-2 on aggregate. But one incident was captured on video when one fan was struck by a vehicle, which reportedly belonged to PSG midfielder Thiago Motta.

With two minutes left Neymar curled the ideal free-kick past Trapp to make it 4-1 on the night. After a foul against Barca goalkeeper Ter Stegen, who has joined his mates in attack, it gets a last free kick in the very last minute.

The ball was cleared again and surely the Barcelona beast was dead.

But back to the unbelievable comeback win against PSG. "I didn't know whether I was off-side or not". Suarez took a dive in the penalty area and, him being a Barca player, was rewarded.

Boss Enrique was close to tears after the remarkable recovery propelled Barca into the last eight. This was all about belief. "Since the start, we have been here out of our passion for football and our love of Paris".

However, the Spanish champions looked down and out when Edison Cavani volleyed home what seemed to be the clinching away goal for PSG.

"They never gave up and you can imagine what it does to our season".

"Three weeks after one of the greatest results in its history, PSG experienced one of its worst nightmares", the sports daily wrote.
