Best Champions League comebacks ever

January transfer rumours

1. Barcelona 6-1 PSG (2017)

(Barcelona 4-0 down from the first leg)

And in first place, it’s Barcelona’s epic 6-1 win over PSG at Camp Nou in March 2017.

Edinson Cavani scored an away goal in the 62nd minute to make it Barcelona 3-1 PSG, the hosts required three more goals to advance to the quarter-finals.

Barça scored their fourth of the night through Neymar, who then bagged again minutes later from the penalty spot in the 88th minute.

Liverpool 3-3 AC Milan (2005)

(Liverpool 3-0 down at half-time, win 3-2 on penalties)

Liverpool’s dramatic victory over AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League final will forever be legendary.

Milan were utterly ruthless in the first half, taking a 3-0 lead thanks to Paulo Maldini’s early opener and a Hernan Crespo brace.

But three goals in six frantic minutes from Steven Gerrard, Vladimir Smicer and Xabi Alonso made it 3-3.

Jerzy Dudek’s penalty shoot-out helped Liverpool win their fifth European Cup.

Manchester United 2-1 Bayern Munich (1999)

(Man Utd losing 1-0 in stoppage time)

The Red Devils became European champions for only the second time in their history thanks to a quick-fire double in stoppage time from Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona (2019)

(Liverpool down 3-0 from the first leg)

Liverpool played against Barcelona at Camp Nou, losing 3-0 to the Lionel Messi-inspired Catalans, two goals each from Divock Origi and substitute Gini Wijnaldum – and *that* Trent Alexander-Arnold corner – sent the Reds through to the 2019 Champions League final.

Ajax 2-3 Tottenham (2019)

(Tottenham 2-0 down in 54th minute and 1-0 down from first leg)

Losing 2-0 at the end of the first half, having already been trailing 1-0 at the start of the night, it seemed implausible that Spurs would reach the Champions League final at around 8:30pm on May 8, 2019.

A hat-trick from Lucas Moura, who struck his winner in the sixth minute of stoppage time, completed one of the most breathtaking comebacks in football history.
